Title: Preliminary psychometric properties of the Arabic version of perceived stress scale


Biography: Abdulkarim Alzayyat


The literature revealed that Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) is the most utilized tool to measure clinical education stress among nursing students. The aim of this methodological study was to assess the psychometric properties of the Arabic version of the PSS. The study used a cross-sectional design with all questionnaires completed at classrooms. Data was collected from 160 undergraduate nursing students whom were recruited by simple random method. The study was conducted on five Jordanian universities during the 2014–2015 academic year. The exploratory factor analyses of the 29-item PSS illustrated that a five-factor solution presented the most robust explanation of the collected data. These factors are clinical teachers, providing nursing care, situation unfamiliarity, nature of clinical practice, and student’s role demands. Moreover, the scale-level CVI for the PSS was 0.94. On the other hand, the total PSS scale alpha coefficient was 0.92 and alpha coefficients for the five subscales were ranging from 0.65 to 0.83. This study supports the use of Arabic version to measure clinical education stress among Jordanian nursing students. Future studies should test the validity of the PSS by using of more advanced analyses that boost the gained results of this exploratory study
