Validity and reliability of the questionnaire was confirmed by content validity and test re- test respectively and Pearson correlation coefficient with (0.8) was performed. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS V.18, Chi-square, t-test and Pearson’s correlation coefficient.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of total stress was 2.84 ± 0.64 and moderate. The mean scores of stressfulness including unpleasant emotions (3.2±0.75), instructor training method                (3.01 ± 0.79), clinical experience (2.94 ± 0.86), educational planning (2.86 ± 0.65), clinical education environment (2.63 ± 0.7) and interpersonal communication(2.06 ±0.74) respectively, had higher levels of stress. There was a significant relationship between the total stress level perceived with the educational level (p =0.003), academic term (p =0.009), age (p =0.001), and native                      (p =0.004) .
