Abstract

The current rise in nursing student attrition has impeded the future supply of registered nurses. With the shortages projected to continue, this growing problem needs to be addressed. Factors influencing nursing student success are diverse and multidimensional. The purpose of this correlational study was to examine the relationship between resilience and student academic success. A descriptive, correlational design was utilized. The study was conducted in a private nursing college with 300 baccalaureate level nursing students. Based on correlational analysis, a weak positive relationship was found between academic success and resilience. Academic success also demonstrated relationships with cumulative grade point average, current nursing course level, employment status, average work hours per week, and race/ethnicity. These findings were consistent with existing literature; however, more research is needed to develop a deeper understanding of the relationship between resilience and academic success in baccalaureate nursing education.
