Abstract

As a significant field of study, nursing is one of the majors in which the role of multiple intelligences such as emotional intelligence seem more important compared to other fields of study. These intelligences have a remarkable impact on the nursing students' progress. The present study was aimed at examining emotional intelligence and its relationship with demographic characteristics among nursing students. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present descriptive study, 300 nursing students were selected by a simple randomly sampling method. The required data was retrieved from the students using Sharing Emotional Intelligence Scale and a demographic information questionnaire and analysed through descriptive statistics and correlational tests using SPSS 21.0. RESULTS The students' mean age was 21.37 +/- 2.39 years. Most of the students were men (55%) and juniors (30%) (Semester 7 (17.1%)). The mean (standard deviation) of emotional intelligence was 104.04 (13.75). Based on Pearson correlation coefficient, the correlation of age (0.084) and average (0.016) with the total score of emotional intelligence was low and there was no significant linear relationship between them (p > 0.05). However, there was a significant positive relationship between age and the field of social skills with a correlation of coefficient of 0.127 (p=0.032). Also, there was a significant positive relationship between average and the field of self-motivation with a correlation coefficient of 0.124 (p=0.037). CONCLUSION The students had an average emotional intelligence. It is recommended that students need to be provided with workshops aimed at boosting their emotional intelligence in order to promote academic levels among nursing students.
