Transforming nursing education and practice through emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence (EI) and its potential to transform nursing education and practice were examined using available literature. The concept of EI was explored and its relationship with intelligence quotient, a traditional indicator of success, was discussed. Current literature indicates EI's potential to enhance an individual's chances of success in his or her career. As a relational based discipline, the integration of EI with nursing education and practice may potentially contribute to the transformation of the nursing profession. Further studies are required to more accurately measure or understand the various facets of this uniquely human and personal skill and how it directly relates to success in higher education, nursing education, and nursing practice, and ultimately transform nursing practice.
