According to an annual study conducted by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), some 64 per cent of all professionals in this industry are currently feeling the strain of their job, with issues such as high workloads and low staffing levels being the primary reasons behind this trend.
Consequently, around 33 per cent are actively seeking a new job as they do not feel able to cope with the pressure they are under for much longer.
The survey found that bullying and poor financial rewards are perceived as problems by nurses.
Tina Donnelly - Wales director of the RCN, which was established in 1916 -commented that a decline in the number of staff at hospitals is not only causing stress among workers but is also potentially compromising the safety of patients.
"It is not acceptable that nurses are being pushed to breaking point," she added.
