Result showed that only (8%) has mild stress, (91%) had moderate stress and had (1%) severe stress, and (2.2%) had poor coping, (96.8%) had average coping and (1%) good coping. There was negative significant correlation (r=-0.721) between stress and coping behaviour among nursing year nursing students. There was significant association between level of stress and demographic variables such as age, education of father and mother, occupation of father and mother and family income.
