Objectives: The prevalence of Coronavirus and its health-related psychosocial consequences is one of the most important human social events of the 21st century. Nurses, due to close contact with patients, are vulnerable to be infected with Covid-19. Therefore, they face severe psychological consequences. This study aimed to determine the relationship between Corona’s anxiety and nursing care behaviors in working in Corona referral hospitals in Kerman in 2020.
Methods: The present study is cross-sectional descriptive-correlational research. Sampling was performed by the census method. A total of 166 nurses entered the study. In the present study, three demographic questionnaires, the Corona Disease Anxiety Scale (CDAS) and Caring Behaviors Inventory (CBI) were used. The analysis was done using Descriptive and Inferential statistics SPSS V. 18 software
Results: The overall score of Corona anxiety among the nurses was 21.39±9.8, and the overall score of the nursing behavior of the studied nurses was 109.7±4.2 with a range of 94 to 118. Spearman’s correlation coefficient showed that there was no significant relationship between corona anxiety and caring behaviors.
Conclusion: The present study showed that nurses working in corona wards suffer from moderate anxiety, and the level of caring behaviors provided by nurses was optimal. According to the current study findings, it is suggested that during the outbreak of emerging and epidemic diseases, to reduce nursing staff’s anxiety, coping strategies and resilience skills, and problem-solving, managers should pay more attention.
