Keywords:coping, burnout, fatigue, nursing student, COVID-19
BACKGROUND: The nursing students should ideally represent relevant and skillful behavior in developing science. Recently, the classical teaching and learning process involving interaction between students was shifted into online learning due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. That ideal condition could not be reached. As a result, the online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic triggers students to deal with stressors such as academic assignments, the difficulty in adapting to home environment, no face-to-face meeting with the fellow students.
AIM: The researcher was aimed to analyze students’ coping strategies for burnout and fatigue from online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
METHODS: It was a quantitative research with a descriptive correlation design and cross-sectional approach. The population of the research was the students in the second semester of the undergraduate program in nursing Universitas Muhammadiyah Semarang. The sample of the research was 83 respondents, which were taken using a purposive sampling technique.
RESULTS: Most of the nursing students were positive coping with 47 respondents (56.6%), severe burnout with 71 respondents (85.5%), and fatigue was found in 40 respondents (48.2%); meanwhile, the rest 43 respondents (52.8%) did not experience fatigue. Base on Pearson test, there was a significant correlate between nursing students coping and fatigue (0.00) with moderate correlation at 0.518, although no correlation coping with burnout.
CONCLUSION: It is expected for the institution to conduct training about more interactive online learning accessible by the student and train a positive coping mechanism to cope with burnout and fatigue.
