Abstract

Background: The role is the behavior that is expected out of a person in a particular status. Social standards influence the advantages and responsibility of a status, and roles are performed in accordance with social standards. Role strain is the stress that occurs if they are not able to meet the expected role in their life and are facing inequalities in their profession. Objective: To assess the role strain among male nursing students. Materials and Methods: A descriptive design was used in the study. A total of 153 undergraduate male nursing students were selected as samples from two private colleges of nursing in Mangalore. The subjects were selected through purposive sampling technique. The data was collected by using demographic proforma and structured questionnaire to assess the role strain among male nursing students. Written permission was obtained from the relevant authorities and the participants before the study. The data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics with the help of SPSS. Results and Conclusion: The findings of the study revealed that majority (60.13%) of male nursing students have mild role strain and 39.86% have moderate role strain. Hence the outcome of the study is not up to the expectation since there is no significant association between the level of role strain and the selected demographic variables.
