dc.description.abstract High levels of stress are prevalent among hospital workers (Dyrbye, Shanafelt, Sinsky, Cipriano, Bhatt, Ommaya, West, & Meyers, 2017), but although stress is high, not many studies have investigated healthy behaviors among hospital workers to reduce stress. Therefore, the purpose of this research study was to investigate the relationship between perceived stress levels and stages of change for healthy behaviors among hospital workers. A volunteer sample of 123 hospital employees was collected in 2018 upon their approval from a hospital in Southern California. Results show that levels of stress were inversely related to stages of change for exercise. In addition, gender found to be not a significant factor in determining the level of stress among hospital workers. However, the level of stress across different demographic factors, such as ethnicity and gender, were reported to be slightly higher than that of average scores in the general population (Cohen, Kamarch, & Mermelstein, 1983). en_US
