Abstract

Objectives: Examine and analyze the resilience levels of first and second semester BSN students in order to check for significant increases and decreases in resilience levels and factors. Methods: Resilience levels were collected using the Connor Davidson CD-RISC-25 tool in both first and second semester students. Results: No significant increases in resilience from first to second semester were noted, as anticipated. Several key areas showed significant decrease. Conclusion: Resilience levels do not necessarily increase from one semester to the next; however, several significant decreases in levels did occur, suggesting a need for a resilience training module in the nursing program.
