Exposure is allocated randomly and the number of groups (which are selected randomly) is large then unrecognised confoundingeffects. In the present research work, experimental method has been used as it is a systematic and scientific approach wherein researchermanipulate one or more variables. At the same time, it is also useful in controlling and measuring any change in other variables. The main aim ofpresent research study is to find out the level of stress which is faced by students enrolled in REBP-2017-1 at SCU (Denny and et.al., 2016).ParticipantsTarget population for the study was male, female and transgender. These people were selected since they have been studying for REBP-2017-1 at SCU. Considering the same, such target group have been selected as they also have the issues related to distress. Total sample size forthe present study was 124 which includes four categories such as male (28), female (88), transgender and other who did not prefer to answer (8).Such students were directly contacted through conducting the survey. While conducting survey, researcher went to the university to look ontothe exact situation.While selecting the participants for the present research work, several ethical aspects were considered which enhanced value andfeasibility of the research procedure. Prior involving the participants in the research study, researcher focused on seeking consent from theparticipants. Ethical form was also filled in order to get permission from the university to include the population in research procedure. Alongwith the same, researcher also gave all the rights to the participants in the study.OutcomesIn the present study, the primary outcome is to analyse the level of distress faced by students enrolled in REBP – 2017-1 at SCU. Thiswill be measured by Correlation, regression and through conducting other tests. These measurement instruments have been selected as they areuseful in giving exact information about the collected data. Further, on the basis of Likert scale, ratings will be given to responses of each andevery question. Under, DASS four rating scale have been used and at the same time Kessler 10 scale of psychological distress is also used.MeasuresIn the present case, survey has been used carried out and questionnaire is being given to the students to get knowledge about the researchaspects. In the current research process, researcher has analysed the level of distress among students enrolled in REBP – 2017-1 at SCU; hencefor the same, statistical tool have been used. Further, comparison is also conducted among students regarding depression among other generalpopulation. Moreover, emphasis has also been laid on activities which students perceive as useful while building resiliency.SurveySurvey was conducted since researcher aims to collect data about level of distress in students enrolled in REBP – 2017-1 at SCU. Thesurvey was done at the start of the unit and participants were invited to participate in the survey procedure. This is done for the purpose ofascertaining current level of stress (Doane, Kelley & Pearson, 2016). Questionnaire were distributed through emails and each students was askedto fill the questionnaire as per the convenience of time. Researcher came to know about the survey when cases of distress were increased in theuniversity.Statistical methods4
In the present research work, data analysis seems to be the most important section as it defines the overall findings of the collectedresponses. Afterwards, collecting the data, researcher focused on managing it; hence suitable database is being utilized for the same procedure.With the help of Quantitative method, data has been analysed appropriately which is also useful in showing clear outcomes and responses. SPSShas been used and several tests are being conducted to reach the aim (Jankowski, 2016). With the help of SPSS, the value of qualitative data isbeing analysed which is also useful in depicting actual results collected from the questionnaire. Similarly, charts and tables are also prepared forthe purpose of showing the responses acquired from survey. Thus, this has been performed under Thematic analysis.RESULTSStatisticsdegreeDASS_1DASS_2DASS_3DASS_4DASS_5DASS_6DASS_7DASS_8DASS_9DASS_10DASS_11DASS_12DASS_13DASS_14DASS_15DASS_16DASS_17DASS_18DASS_19DASS_20DASS_21.NValid000000000000000000000Missing222222222222222222222ClinicalservicesNValid444444444444444444444Missing000000000000000000000Mean3.001.752.001.502.251.751.751.502.252.002.252.502.001.751.502.002.002.001.502.001.75Median3.001.501.501.502.001.502.001.002.001.502.002.001.502.001.501.501.501.501.501.501.00Mode3111a11211112121a1111a11Std.Deviation.816.9571.414.5771.500.957.5001.0001.5001.4141.5001.0001.414.500.5771.4141.4141.414.5771.4141.500NursingNValid686768686868686868686868686768686867686868Missing343333333333343334333Mean2.471.911.741.622.512.251.592.152.091.742.182.281.911.931.841.811.782.011.961.751.54Median2.002.002.001.002.002.001.002.002.002.002.002.002.002.002.002.001.502.002.002.001.00Mode221123122122121111111Std.Deviation.762.830.785.811.938.887.815.885.958.822.913.878.926.841.924.885.928.929.969.853.888MidwiferyNValid232323232323222323232323232323232323232323Missing000000100000000000000Mean2.301.611.611.432.262.301.451.911.831.352.132.301.701.831.741.521.391.911.571.351.17Median2.001.001.001.002.002.001.002.002.001.002.002.001.001.001.001.001.002.001.001.001.00Mode211122111122111111111Std.Deviation.926.839.839.8431.054.876.8581.125.937.6471.0141.0201.1051.0291.054.846.722.996.945.647.491OtherNValid555555555555555555555Missing111111111111111111111Mean1.801.601.601.402.001.801.401.801.601.401.601.401.401.601.201.601.401.601.402.001.60Median1.002.001.001.002.002.001.002.001.001.002.001.001.001.001.002.001.002.001.002.001.00Mode12111a1a11a112111121211a1Std.Deviation1.095.548.894.8941.000.837.548.837.894.548.548.548.548.894.447.548.894.548.5481.225.894a.
