Abstract
The study attempted to examine the effect of emotional intelligence as a moderator of the job stress and mental health problem relationship. Data were collected from 677 nurses (361 trainees and 316 trained nurses) from three general hospitals in Malaysia. The Job Stress Survey (JSS) was adapted to assess generic sources of occupational stress. The Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI) was adapted to assess level of emotional competence and a scale of Occupational Stress Indicator (OSI) was adopted to investigate mental health problems among nurses. The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of sources of stress and emotional competency on mental health problem. We also evaluated whether nurses who were skilful at regulating their own and others’ emotions would be able to protect themselves from the adverse effects of stress and reporting less mental health problem than those low in emotional intelligence.
