Competency test is compulsory to be followed by all health workers as a requirement to obtain a registration certificate letters. This competency test must be followed by all final year student who have been completed their Ners education. Of course, it will lead anxiety to final student because if they do not pass the competency test, they will not get an STR and considered as incompetent. The level of anxiety is a condition that makes Ners student feel uneasy, worried, afraid, and tense when they are about to face the competency test. The level of anxiety categorized by various responses such as effective, cognitive, physiologic, and behavioural.
