Psychological capital constructs of hope, efficacy, resilience, and optimism can be developed to promote students’ academic and professional success. Grit, consisting of passion and the capacity to persevere over time despite challenges, can also be developed and measured. This pilot project aims to study the implementation of evidence-based interventions within course concepts to improve psychological capital, grit, and wellbeing. A 24-question PsyCap Questionnaire-24 (PCQ-24) and 8-question Grit-8 survey were deployed to 2 cohorts of baccalaureate nursing students fall semester to provide preintervention baseline data. Repeat surveys will be given spring semester. These data will provide formative feedback on interventions.
