Abstract

Objective: To identify the presence of anxiety and depression among nursing workers working in the hospital area and to analyze whether there is a relationship between these health changes and some characteristics of these workers.

Methods: Cross-sectional, exploratory, correlational study with a quantitative approach, carried out in a hospital institution, with 164 nursing professionals. For data collection, a personal and professional characterization questionnaire and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale - Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) were used.

Results: The nursing team showed high levels of Anxiety (44.5%) and Depression (24.4%). However, the tests applied did not show statistical differences between professionals working between different sectors of the hospital when compared to those working in critical areas of hospitalization. About working time, half of those with Depression worked less time in the nursing area and about the workload; those who work longer have shown to be more anxious.

Conclusion: Future research should investigate the health needs of nursing workers, since anxiety and depression disorders can be modifiable risk factors.
