Psychological problems are those problems that have to do with the mental status of the individuals. They arise from different factors which may be work related or personal related factors. Psychological problems are likely to weight on individual quality of life because they affect individual performance. It is only when individuals are in their optimum health condition that they can perform to the expected standards. Psychological problems in nursing may arise from work related factors or from personal or interpersonal factors. They are likely to affect the performance of the nurses and this will have an impact on the overall productivity of nurses. Coming into contact with traumatic situations in their practices the degree of impact of these traumatic experiences varies within nurses but it is evident that most nurses are psychologically affected by the situations they are likely to face (Jennings 4). The degree to which nurses are psychologically affected depends on the situations they encounter in their career practices.
