Abstract: Nursing students often encounter a high level of pressure in clinical practice, which may lead to psychological or emotional problems in their career, and finally affect the quality of patient care they provide. The purpose of this study is to determine the level and type of stress experienced by nursing students in clinical practice, and to determine the coping strategies used by students to alleviate stress. A descriptive cross-sectional design was used in this study. A total of 200 students who participated in the nursing program were studied. The data were collected by perceived stress scale (PSS) and coping behavior scale (CBI). The data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA, Pearson test and independent sample testn SPSS version 22. Findings indicated that nursing students experienced a high level of stress. The most common coping strategy utilized by the students was problem solving, while avoidance was the least frequently used one. Saudi nursing students experienced stress levels above the mean in clinical training. The most common stressors were related to assignments and workload. The study recommends that clinical curriculum requirements and the workload of nursing students should be reviewed.
