Professional care work is becoming increasingly important in the context of demographic change. At the same time, many positions are vacant. In the following, the BIBB/BAuA Employee Survey 2018 serves as a basis for examining the work demands, stressors and health complaints of geriatric nurses and hospital nurses. The findings show that nursing professionals are exposed not only to high physical demands at work but also to considerable mental demands. This is also reflected in the perception of stressors and in the health complaints of nursing staff.
