The participants filled out Secondary Traumatic Stress Scale (STSS) and Coping Styles Inventory, and the data was analyzed by Pearson correlation and regression. 
Results: The results showed that 16.7% of nurses had the severity of secondary traumatic stress symptoms. Problem-focused coping negatively (r=-0.47) and emotion focused coping positively (r=0.405) were correlated to secondary traumatic stress symptoms (p<0.05). The coping styles explained 0.31 of total variance of secondary traumatic stress symptoms in nurses.
