Title of Research Project:

I am working on two projects; emotional intelligence and test anxiety with nursing students

Research Description:

Aromatherapy has been shown to be an option for reducing test anxiety in college students. Aromatherapy can be beneficial for the health and education of college students and may be linked to positive physiological effects and improved exam scores. This research will explore the effects of aromatherapy amongst nursing college students with elevated levels of anxiety when taking tests. It is the hope that helping maternal child health students do their best and aromatherapy is an inexpensive and simple method to help decrease student test anxiety and increase better test scores and a potential consideration for a testing environment. The EI project is to assess the relationship between the development of emotional intelligence during undergraduate nursing students. The PI will utilize the definition of emotional intelligence as composed by Mayer, Salovey and Caruso (2004) as this definition is inclusive of many of the key tenets of the theoretical framework of the project.
