A Quantitative approach, non experimental descriptive comparative research design was used for this study. 50 samples from each unit were selected by non probability purposive sampling technique. Data collection tools included were structured questionnaire, nursing stress scale, nurses job satisfaction assessment scale and nurses coping strategy assessment tool.

Results and conclusion

The analysis revealed that non-critical care unit nurses were having more stress than critical care unit nurses (t(98) = 8.98, p < 0.05). Critical care nurses were having more job satisfaction than non-critical care nurses (t(98) = 9.56, p < 0.05). The coping strategies adopted by critical care nurses and non-critical care nurses were different(t(98) = 1.20, p < 0.05). The relationship between job related stress and job satisfaction was found to be weak and positive among critical care nurses and weak and negative among non-critical care nurses. The relationship between job satisfaction and coping strategies among both critical care and non-critical care nurses was very weak and negative. Study also revealed a weak positive relationship between job related stress and coping strategies among both critical care and non-critical care nurses. There was no significant association between the research variables and the selected socio demographic variables.
