ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This quantitative correlational study investigated the relationship between trait emotional intelligence (EI) and academic achievement as evident by Grade Point Average (GPA) among senior Black students enrolled in Baccalaureate Science nursing (BSN) programs within the United States. Participants were invited via the Internet to volunteer for the study. A sample of 60 participants dispersed over 17 states volunteered for the study. Inclusion criteria were students who self-identified as being Black, students who were seniors in BSN programs within the United States, and students who were at least 18 years of age. Participants were asked to self-report GPA, complete a demographic questionnaire, and complete the TEIQue- SF (quantitative measurement of trait EI). Participation in the study was voluntary and the identities of participants remained anonymous. Information that could be used to identify participants was not collected. The methodology used was quantitative survey, and statistical software (SPSS) was used for data analysis. The study investigated the relationship between trait EI and GPA, trait EI and gender, and trait EI and age. The statistical findings of the study revealed that there was no relationship between trait EI and GPA, there was no relationship between trait EI and gender; there was no difference in trait EI between gender; and there was no relationship between trait EI and age. It is important to review current literature for other tools that can measure EI among Black students enrolled in BSN nursing programs. The recommendations are for the study to be replicated among students entering nursing programs and students in specific geographic locations, as well as collection of data face-to-face instead of via the Internet using more than one quantitative measure of EI.
