Abstract A number of items from the Beck and Srivastava Stress Inventory and some new additional items were analysed in answers from 235 first-year student nurses. Four factors - academic load, clinical concerns, personal problems and interface worries - produced a psychometric solution validated in an additional sample of 188 subjects.
