Responsibilities of nurse educators include assisting nurses to adjust to a rapidly changing healthcare environment and demonstrating how these efforts are effective. In this article, the authors describe a study that measures the effects of teaching hardiness, a characteristic encompassing commitment, control, and challenge, to newly employed hospital nurses. The authors believe the study results indicate that instruction in hardiness is possible and may have an impact on morale.
