by Ruiz, Julio I., M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2020, 63; 27957233
Abstract (Summary)

As the healthcare industry has evolved so has the role of the clinician. In today’s environment its more important than ever to have not only skilled technical professionals but also those who serve with high degree of emotional intelligence. The present study examined the effects of emotional intelligence training on a group of nursing anesthetist students to further the literature around the value of emotional intelligence training and its direct relevance to the nursing profession. Emotional intelligence, in the four-branch model, can be broken up into four categories which are the ability to identify emotions, the ability to use emotions to facilitate thought, the ability to understand emotions, and the ability to manage them (Mayer, Salovey, & Caruso, 2003). The current study evaluated the efficacy of the training against the four-branch model of emotional intelligence, as well as Kirkpatrick’s (1994) four levels of training effectiveness. The results indicated support for the value that emotional intelligence as an ability can bring to those that serve in the clinical setting.
