Nlethoda This study was carried out using a qualaatwe descriptive design and data was collected through individual interviews using an interview guide. A qualkative content analysis was conducted taking both deductive and inductive approaches. Finding. Eighteen nurses (average age of 34.7 years) participated in the study. Their general attitude and feelings regarding working during the COVID-0 pandemic in the hospital stating were positive. Several behavioral flumes in the nurses’ daily working and private daily lives were reported. Psychological impacts included Me fear of infecting someone at home, insomnia, and sadness. Headaches, diarrhea, muscle tension, skin redness, and increased sweating were identified as the most common physiml imparts. In terms of social impact, all nurses mentioned social isolation and the increased use of (new) media. Conclusioaw Working with people suffering from COVID-0 had psychological and physical effects on caregivers.
