Abstract

Introduction: Hospitalization for children may lead to stress for both children and parents. Parents’ anxiety would elicit a coping mechanism which is required in overcoming stress. One way to minimize the anxiety and to boost coping is by optimizing the role of nurses in informing and supporting the parents (caring). Method: In this research, Pre-experimental One Group Pret-Post test Design was used aiming to identify the decreased anxiety and increased coping in pediatric patients’ parents exposed to Swanson’s caring behavior. 14 nurses and 47 parents were chosen using total sampling method and purposive sampling, respectively. The independent variable was the nurse’s caring behavior while the dependent variables were parents’ anxiety and coping. The nurses of Nusa Indah Mardi Waluyo Blitar inpatient ward were given intervention beforehand through socialization and guidelines of Swanson caring behavior, while the parents were given secondhand intervention from the nurses. Research data were processed using Paired t-test. Result and Analysis: Results showing p = 0.000 (<0.05) means that the nurses were able to significantly reduce the anxiety and increase the coping of the parents whose children are hospitalized. Discussion and Summary: Nurse’s caring behavior is the ethical and ideal morality value in nursing which require interpersonal and humanistic qualities. A continuous training for caring behavior is needed in nursing as it affects the anxiety and coping mechanism of the parents. Keywords: Nurse Caring Behavior, Anxiety, Pediatric Patient Parents, and Coping Mechanism
