time. The excess workload can cause work stress. This often occurs in emergency room nurses where the
emergency room nurse is part of the hospital which is the first destination for patients who experience an
emergency to get first aid immediately. This study aims to identify the relationship between workload and
work stress of nurses in the emergency room at North Lombok District General Hospital. In this study,
researchers used a total sampling technique and obtained a sample of 27 nurses. The instrument used in
measuring workload and work stress is a questionnaire. The data obtained were analyzed using the Spearman
Rank Test statistical test. The results of this study using data analysis with the Spearman Rank Test statistical
test can be seen from the relationship between workload and work stress which is determined by the results
