Abstract

Hardiness is a developing concept of particular relevance to primary care nursing. Evolving out of existential psychology, hardiness is proposed as a personality characteristic that serves to mediate the stress-illness relationship, promoting health in the presence of high degrees of life change and stress. In this review, the concept of hardiness is analyzed and discussed. Its implications for nursing theory and primary care practice are demonstrated.
