Background: Its rarely ever that a person comes joyfully to a hospital and its the sad plight of the medical staff, to manage an individual who is unwell physically and maybe even mentally and emotionally. It requires yeoman efforts and immense physical and emotional resilience on the care givers part, to provide effective care to patients with a smile on your face. Resilience is the capacity of the individual to recover quickly from difficulties. This quality equips the nurse to oversee the regular routine of disease and death among patients under her care and impart care, deemed effective by the patient. All nurses, have to be highly resilient to be able to provide effective care to patients under their care. Objective: To assess the emotional resilience of the care giving nurses and its correlation with effectiveness of care provided by nurses Methods: A quantitative non experimental descriptive cross sectional study design with 50 nurses and 100 patients cared by them selected through non probability convenient sampling. Resilience scale of 25 questions, Patient Satisfaction with Nursing Care Quality Questionnaire was administered. Results: 43% of nurses had Moderately High Resilience, 18 % and 10% had High and Very High levels of Resilience. 56% patients reported good care, 42% reported that they were moderately satisfied with care and 2% reported receiving poor nursing care. Among patients cared by nurses with moderately high resilience and more, 52% reported good care and 40 % were moderately satisfied with care. Conclusion: High level of resilience provides psychological empowerment and low job stress. Also predicts greater job satisfaction. Resilience of Nurses was positively related to Patient Satisfaction with Quality of Nursing care
