Nervousness is the feeling you get when you are worried or anxious. Nervousness and stress are close connected to each other, but there is a difference. Stress is more related to peak moments while nervousness is a lasting feeling. 

Feeling rushed all day long

It is the feeling you get when you can’t control the situation, when you have to handle more than you are used to, when you have stressful situations or events that last over a longer period of time.

Nervousness is a feeling you experience constantly, it is a feeling that might be exacerbated by different stress factors. It is a continuous feeling, that persists even when the stress factors subside.

Being nervous includes feeling on-edge, feeling jittery, feeling apprehensive that something may happen, and even being afraid to some extent. Unresolved nervousness may lead to other problems such as uncontrollable worrying, anxiety attacks and panic attacks that come out of the blue, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours, irrational fears and phobias (particularly social phobia).
