Title

EXAMINING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GRIT AND QUALITY OF LIFE: THE MEDIATING ROLE OF SOCIAL SUPPORT AMONG NURSES

Abstract

Nurses make up the largest segment of healthcare workforce and find themselves on the front lines of treating patients with various mental and physical ailments. Thus, it can be hard for them to cope with their personal health and life instances. Grit is the term given to a non-cognitive, positive personality trait which is based on a person’s individual perseverance of effort combined with the passion for a particular long term goal or end state. Social Support refers to how individuals perceive friends, family members and others as sources available to provide overall support during times of need. The present study focuses on examining the relationship between grit and quality of life among nurses and also the mediating role of social support. A sample of 158 nurses was administered with the Short Grit Scale by Angela Duckworth (2009), Quality of Life Scale by Sharma and Nasreen (2014) and Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support by Zimet, Dahlem, Zimet & Farley (1988). The relationships between grit, social support and quality of life were examined using correlation analysis and hierarchical regression analysis. A positive correlation of grit and social support with quality of life was revealed. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that grit and social support contributes in increasing the levels of quality of life among nurses. Social support was found partially mediating the link between grit and quality of life.
