Background: Acquiring enrolment into a collegiate course of study marks the commencement of accomplishing a vocational destination. Nonetheless, the asperity of collegiate educational activity can be arduous. There isn’t any incertitude that nursing is a worthwhile and rewarding job for all those who dream of a career in healthcare. Although the profession has its own perks, demanding and frantic schedule isn’t oblivious. Stress, depression, and anxiety have the potency to intervene with learning, impact academic achievements, and spoil clinical practice performance. Methodology: With this view in mind, a cross sectional descriptive study was carried out among the Nursing colleges in the district of Lucknow, Uttarpradesh to assess the level of stress, depression and anxiety among the second, third and fourth year B.Sc nursing students using DASS-21 scale. Results: It was quite astonishing to find out that, among the 300 students who were enrolled into the study; fourth year B.Sc nursing students had a higher level of stress, depression and anxiety. Conclusion: Managing stress in a profession like nursing is not easy as pie, yet adaptive techniques should be employed to palliate the pressure and retrieve control. The key to this lies within each individual, which is to experiment and find out own stress management techniques that works best for each.
