What is it about?

Across the Middle Eastern countries, there is a lack of studies exploring the connection between the quality of life (QoL) and academic resilience of nursing students. This study determines the association between nursing students’ profile variables and their QoL and academic resilience (AR).

Why is it important?

GPA exhibited a positive correlation with QoL; thus, nursing students with higher GPA have a more stable and desirable QoL. Additionally, our findings illustrate the individuality of nursing students despite their shared characteristics.


Although our results are comparable to previous studies on the same phenomena, the uniqueness of our study underlies three important reasons: (1) the study was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic, which the world has never experienced, (2) we focused on AR that can only be ascribed to the NSs, rather than on other types of resilience, and (3) understanding the QoL and AR of NSs is essentially significant and urgent because their vulnerability to countless stressors is intensely overwhelming given the fact that their curricular demands may be an aggravating factor in their current struggle with the pandemic. Our results and the study itself should be a pivotal factor for more research focusing on the same phenomena in other academic institutions among their students.
