What is it about?
We examined the multidimensionality of nursing students' anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic. This concept remains understudied among nursing students, specifically Saudi nursing students. This study investigated the state of anxiety of nursing students using the COVID-19 anxiety scale (CAS), COVID-19 anxiety syndrome scale (COVID-19ASS), and short health anxiety inventory (SHAI) instruments. Also, this study examined the differences in the nature of nursing students' anxiety state whether it's COVID-19 anxiety, an anxiety syndrome, or health anxiety when grouped according to their profile variables.

Why is it important?
Our study extended the understanding of the multidimensionality of anxiety. We discovered that nursing students experience anxiety symptoms and react differently. Anxiety is specific to COVID-19 or a set of similar anxiety symptoms. Further research is needed to explore the anxiety state of nursing students during the pandemic.
