Abstract

The aim of the current study was to investigate the relation between coping strategies and selfesteem, as well as to determine the existence of differences in coping strategies based on experience, and self-esteem based on social status among nurses in hospital institutions. The study employed a descriptive approach with a sample of 55 nurses selected using simple random sampling method. Two scales were utilized:-Lazarus and Folkman's (1984) Coping Strategies Scale-Rosenberg's (1965) Self-Esteem Scale The study found the following results:-There was a statistically significant positive correlation between coping strategies (confrontation and taking control, problem-solving, positive reevaluation, self-control) and self-esteem among nurses in the Bougara Abdelkader Hospital in the city of Afflu. Conversely, there was a statistically significant negative correlation between coping strategies (distancing, self-blame, seeking social support, avoidance and escape) and self-esteem.There were statistically significant differences in coping strategies (confrontation and taking control, problem-solving, distancing) in favor of more experienced nurses. However, there were no statistically significant differences in coping strategies (self-blame, seeking social support, avoidance and escape, positive re-evaluation, self-control) among nurses in the hospital institution based on experience.-There were significant differences in self-esteem among nurses in the hospital institution based on marital status, favoring married individuals.
