The purpose of this study was to identify perceived stressors and manifestations of stress in nurse practitioners practicing in Missouri and California. The greatest sources of stress reported by the entire sample (N=80) were in the categories of time demands and role restrictions. Missouri nurse practitioners found role restriction problems significantly more stressful than California nurse practitioners did. Manifestations of stress fell within the norms of non-psychiatric adults on the Symptom Check List 90-R.
