The effects of school life, emotional intelligence, and social intelligence on resilience of nursing university students.

This study is a descriptive correlation study to investigate the demographic characteristics, school life, emotional intelligence, social intelligence, and resilience of nursing university students and to identify the factors affecting the correlation and resilience of each variable. The results showed that emotional intelligence was 3.46, social intelligence was 3.80, and resilience was 3.75. There was a statistically significant difference in resilience according to religion, academic motivation, grades, and major satisfaction. The emotional intelligence of the subjects had a statistically significant positive correlation with social intelligence, resilience, resilience-control, resilience-positively, resilience-sociality. Social intelligence has a statistically significant positive correlation with resilience, resilience-control, resilience-positive, resilience-sociality, and resilience. Resilience had a statistically significant positive correlation with resilience-control, resilience-positive-positive, resilience-sociality. Resilience-control had a statistically significant positive correlation with resilience-positive and resilient-sociality. Resilience-positive had a statistically significant positive correlation with resilience-sociality. The results of this study showed that resilience, emotional intelligence, and social intelligence are related. Therefore, in order to improve the resilience of university students, a life management strategy considering emotional intelligence and social intelligence will be needed.
