    Introduction : It is important to investigate the job strain and stress of

    conscience (SC) of NAs not only for the sake of nurse assistants

    (NAs), but also due to the impact on the quality of care they provide.

    Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate job strain, SC and

    associated variables among NAs working in residential care. Method :

    NAs (n=225) completed questionnaires, including job strain, SC and

    potentially associated variables. The variables were compared

    concerning high and low job strain and SC and were explored with

    multiple linear regression analyses. Results : Organisational and

    environmental support, personalised care provision and, a positive

    caring climate were associated with low job strain and SC as well as

    NAs receiving a supportive leadership. In addition, having compulsory

    schooling in comparison with upper secondary schooling was

    associated with low job strain and SC. Factors related to health

    complaints and work-related information were associated with high

    job strain and SC. Conclusion : Exploring and adopting a broader

    perspective of factors which are connected to strenuous aspects of

    NAs’ work situation in residential care are important for the provision

    and management of nursing-care. In order to ensure the wellbeing of

    NAs and in turn the quality of care, both the NAs and their leaders

    need to be addressed simultaneously. Person-centeredness concerns

    the actual care-provision and the care climate which need to be

    implemented into the care system/care philosophy. This highlights the

    importance of the leaders’ role as crucial when implementing or

    sustaining person-centred care in residential care for older people.
