“…Feelings of loneliness and low social support may affect physical and psychological conditions and academic performance (19,22) . In this study, there was a remarkable occurrence of depressive symptoms in the 3rd semester, which may be related to the adaptation process, the reality of higher education and the beginning of specific disciplines of the nursing course, in which students are already in greater contact with sick and suffering patients, in situations that require knowledge and skills that are still being developed (9,13) . Corroborating these findings, another study found that students in the third and fourth semester presented greater chance of developing depressive symptoms (23) .…”

“…In the present study, the "Performance of practical activities", which is related to the students' skills and their feelings related to patient care, was associated with low and medium stress intensity in fifth, seventh and ninth semester students. Practical activities have been considered as stress factors for nursing students in previous research (13)(14)(15) . This suggests a concern of students with field practice, which may have arisen after the beginning of the fourth semester, when they start their practical activities in health facilities.…”

“…Additionally, a survey in Scotland involving 113 third-year adult nursing students found that some of the greatest reported barriers preventing higher education diploma students from considering a transfer to a degree programme were 'the combined pressures of work, study and family stress' (Sheward 2005, p.153). Similarly, a questionnaire completed by 111 nursing undergraduates at a Brazilian university highlighted that the main stressors reported by students included inadequate time with family members and for leisure activities (de Souza et al, 2016). Given that 'the widening participation agenda has been encouraging mature students to go to university' and data suggests that one in four higher education students in the UK is a parent (White 2012, p.64), it seems reasonable to conclude that such tensions may be commonplace within the undergraduate PRN student population at many universities; especially for those completing part-time undergraduate study.…”
