Materials and methods: In this descriptive corelational study ‎‏171‏‎ second, third and fourth ‎year baccalaureate nursing students completed three questionnaires: an investigator designed ‎students demographic data questionnaire, the clinical teaching survey and a self-evaluation ‎questionnaire, designed to measure state anxiety.‎

Results: Findings of the Pearson's correlations indicated there were moderate negative ‎correlations between the personally(r=‎‏-0.63‏‎, p<‎‏0.0001‏‎) and professionally(r=‎‏-0.47‏‎, p<‎‏0.0001‏‎) ‎teaching behaviors of clinical faculty and students' state of anxiety. Covariate analysis ‎revealed that indirectly, students' age, marital status and unit of clinical training effected ‎statistically significant on anxiety.
