Author information

University of Akron College of Nursing, Mary Gladwin Hall, Akron, OH 44325, USA.


Evolution of the construct of resilience from physiological and psychological research extends from the 1800s to the present. This review supports 3 observations: (1) the importance of a dynamic, interactive perspective for understanding resilience; (2) the complexity of the construct requires a holistic perspective; and (3) the importance of exposure to diverse experiences and educational perspectives for professional health care students.
