Background

The environment and activities related to nurses' work are factors that threaten their mental health and may result in anxiety.

Objectives

The present study was conducted with the aim of determining the level of anxiety of nurses in the hospitals of the west of Guilan province and related factors.

Materials & Methods

In this cross-sectional analytical study, 388 nurses from West Guilan hospitals completed the Spielberger anxiety questionnaire. Data were analyzed using t-tests or non-parametric equivalent, and multivariate linear regression model.

Results

The average age of the participants was 34.5±8.4 years. The mean score for state and trait anxiety were 45.4 ± 5.3 and 43.7 ± 3.9, respectively. In terms of state anxiety, more than half of the study's population (57%) had severe anxiety, while for trait anxiety, the majority of the sample (57.6%) had moderate anxiety. There was a significant relationship between walking and the reduction of anxiety levels.

Conclusion
