This study was carried out using an analytical research design to examine sociodemographic and occupational factors that predict traumatic stress symptoms in emergency room nurses. This research was carried out with 269 emergency nurses in the emergency departments of all education and research, state, private and university hospitals within the borders of Ankara Metropolitan Municipality and allowing the study to be carried out. Data on descriptive and occupational characteristics were collected using the Sociodemographic and Occupational Information Form and the Quality of Life Scale for Employees and data on traumatic stress were collected between 15 November 2021 and 20 May 2022 using the Impact of Events Scale. In data analysis, independent sample t-test, one-way analysis of variance, Pearson correlation analysis and multiple linear regression analysis were used with frequency analyses. The total mean score of the Emergency Service Nurses' Impact of Events Scale was 57.51±16.35. The relationship between sociodemographic factors and the Impact of Events Scale was not significant (p>0.05). Therefore, sociodemographic factors were not included in the model. The model established to determine professional variables that predict the Impact of Events was statistically significant (F=59.960; p<0.001) and explained 39.8% of the change in the Impact of Events. While the effect of Compassion Fatigue (p=0.001) and Burnout (p=0.008) on the Impact of Events was statistically significant; The effect of Compassion Satisfaction and being affected by Covid-19 is not significant (p>0.05). According to these results, it is recommended that emergency room nurses be accepted as a risky group in terms of traumatic stress, support programs should be created and implemented by nursing administrations to recognize and reduce traumatic stress symptoms, compassion fatigue and burnout should be included in these programs and traumatic stress levels should be monitored at regular intervals.
