People diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorders are regarded as one of the most difficult patient groups to manage in the mental health field. Very few previous studies have assessed the affects of these patients on the health care workers. This study examined the anxiety levels of Registered Nurses towards people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorders. This anxiety level was compared to the nurses' level of education and the years of experience in the mental health field.
