This approach requires the tools of holistic communication which engages the nurses to empathize, sympathize and provide therapeutic care across their cultural, spiritual and social backgrounds. The literature review documents that much patient dissatisfaction and many complaints are due to breakdown in communication. The potential communication can well be established by regulating patient’s emotions, feelings, ideas, perceptions and expectations. This study explored the psychosocial care and the potential barriers that come across during the nursing care.

2.1 THEORY The Lazarus Theory The Lazarus stress theory has gone through many essential revisions since his first presentation as a comprehensive theory.(cf. Lazarus 1991, Lazarus and Folkman 1984, Lazarus and Launier 1978).

Nursing education emphasizes the value of critical thinking skills to ensure that nursing professionals achieve success in their career. Critical thinking and reflection require nurses to question the underlying assumptions, facts, and arguments in order to develop new knowledge and skills. However, as MacDonalds-Wicks and Levet-Joness (2012) indicate, today’s learning and teaching methods do not support the development of high-level clinical thinking skills. Additionally, many educators often find difficulties incorporating technology in their teaching approaches and in the classroom. For the educators to overcome the challenges of using technology, they should become competent in different software applications and equipment.

One explanation to why people respond differently to a certain situation is due to their various personality characteristics, but it can also depend upon the individual’s previous experiences with the supervisor or whether the reprimand is justified (Aldwin and Werner, 2012).

Instead, there are a range of techniques that be used for reducing stress (Robbins, 2007). According to literature on stress, coping strategies can be divided into individual respectively organizational strategies.
With this, nursing students are required to possess more knowledge on nursing theory and concepts. More refined clinical judgment skills are also demanded from them.

Elevated levels of stress negatively impact the physical and emotional well-being of nursing students.
