Pang Bing jie,Zhang Man ling,Jiang Zhi jun, et al  
Mental health status and work stress factors were studied among 747 nurses by using Goldberg's 12 item general health questionnaire (GHQ-12) and McLean's self-assessment scheme of work stress in a self-administered questionnaire (MWSQ).The results showed that the percentage of depression;mental tension and anxiety or sleeplessness were comparatively high.The prevalence of cases of mental ill health was 12.3%.The highest proportion was in the emergency and pediatric department.The results of general statistical analysis showed that the proportions of reported problems were 30% and 25% respectively ( P0.001) .Three kinds of work stress factors (coping ability job satisfaction and work stressors) have significant effect on mental health status ( P0.001 ).The analysis of Logistic regression showed that the stress factors such as working in emergency department had comparatively important effect on the mental health (R= 0.67 ,P 0.01).These showed that work stress factors of nursing have a close relationship to nurse's mental health status.So it is necessary to improve the mental health of nurses.
