The sample consisted of 700 nurses. Sociodemographic details were collected through a proforma. A self-rating translated Job Stress Questionnaire was administered followed by a self-rating Urdu version of the AKUAD scale for the estimation of job stress and intensity of anxiety and depression. SPSS version 16 was used for statistics.
Results: The prevalence of anxiety and depression was 100% with a mean score of 41±10.70 and job stress 38.96±18.76. The prevalence of mild, moderate, severe and very severe degrees of anxiety and depression was 55.6%,39.3%,4.6% and 0.6% respectively. There was no significant correlation between total scores on (AKUADS) and job stress on JSQ (0.836 P≥0.5). Five items of job stress: Inability to satisfy patients (0.022, P ≤0.5), health hazards (o.oo3, P ≤o.5), dealing with violent patients (0.001, P≤0.5), dealing with abusive patients(0.043≤0.5) and shift work(0.027, P ≤0.05) showed statistically negative correlation with severity of anxiety and depression.

Although no significant relationship was observed between anxiety and depression and job stress as a whole, yet a significant negative relationship with some aspects of job stress was found. The findings reflected a public health issue.
