Background: Emotional resilience refers to one's ability to adapt to stressful situations or crises. More resilient people are able to “roll with the punches” and adapt to adversity without lasting difficulties; less resilient people have a harder time with stress and life changes, both major and minor. Objectives: The objectives of the study were to assess the effect of structured training program on knowledge of emotional resilience and to seek association between knowledge scores and selected demographic variables. Material and Methods: The research approach selected for the present study was a quantitative approach. A preexperimental research design was adapted with one-group pretest–posttest design. The study was conducted in a selected nursing college of Hyderabad. The sample size was 32. The sample chosen for the study was B.Sc. Nursing 1st-year students. Convenient sampling technique was used. A questionnaire with multiple-choice questions was prepared. Results: Majority of the students that is 16 (50%) who participated in the study were aged 18 years. Most of them belonged to nuclear family that is 25(78%). The pretest mean scores were 12.4 and the posttest mean scores were 16.5. Paired “t” test value was 18.6 and table value is 2.05 at 0.05 and the df is 31 which indicated that structured teaching was effective in improving knowledge of the students. There was no association between knowledge and selected demographic variables, such as age, religion, and type of family. Conclusion: It is during this novice period that they experience a lot of emotional upheavals and find it difficult to cope with trivial matters. The knowledge about emotional resilience will help them to face the challenges of life with optimism, and it would help them to use their problem-solving skills and to solve complex problems in life.
