The nursing staffs, customer care or the front office are the most critical and important factors in their premium services. A hospital should treat its employees especially its nurses in the same way as it treats its patients because if the employees are not satisfied with their jobs, they will leave them. Stress is normal. Stress is generally related to work, family, decisions, future and so on. Stress is both physical and mental. The stress and stressors are induced due to feeling out of control, feeling direction-less, guilt over procrastination or failing to keep commitments and more commitments than one can manage. Changes initiate or institute, uncertainty and high expectations of self. Hence, the present study is intended to analyse the working condition and the influence of stress on various factors of nurses working in public and private hospitals in Coimbatore district.
