Effect of ‘grit’ on success and well-being of nurse leaders

Editor’s Note

The personality quality termed “grit” was associated with longevity as a leader, higher educational attainment, and reduced burnout in nurse leaders in this study.

A survey of nurse leaders across the US measuring grit (ie, courage and resolve, strength of character) and well-being found that grit was significantly related to an increased sense of personal accomplishment, increased longevity in leadership roles, and reduced burnout.

Grit, perseverance, and passion for long-term goals have been linked to reduced burnout and predictable success in other industries, but less has been known about its effect on nurse leaders, the authors say.
