A recent study of nurses' stress reveals community nurses are experiencing the same high levels of job strain and mental distress as their hospital colleagues. Michael Calnan and David Wainwright describe the ups and downs of life in the community

A recent study of acute hospital M % trusts has shown that, with the / % exception of managers, nurses are more likely to report significant levels of mental distress than other occupational groups (Borrill and Haynes 1999). Twenty eight per cent of hospital nurses were described as suffering from minor mental distress - markedly higher than their counterparts in similar types of occupation outside the health service (19 per cent). Until recently, however, rates of stress among primary care nurses was unknown.
