Alienation is an experience of dissatisfaction and disconnectedness with oneself, with others, with one's God, with nature or a transcendent realm of being. Alienation in adolescents can lead to acting-out behaviors, including juvenile delinquency, drug addiction, and suicide. Nursing students, the adolescents of today, are the nurses of tomorrow who will deal with human behavior. Their psychological well-being is an important factor in managing their client's condition. Positive cognition and Learned resourcefulness were found to buffer the stress associated with developmental challenges of adolescents, and play an important role in the development of health promotion strategies during this stormy period. Purpose. This study examined the relationships among alienation, positive cognition, learned Resourcefulness, and happiness in first grade nursing students in Alexandria, Egypt. Theoretical Framework. Rosenbaum (1980) Learned Resourcefulness Theory provided the context for examining relationships between the study variables. Design and sample. A cross-sectional, descriptive, correlational design was used to examine the hypothesized relationships among the study variables in a sample of 170 first grade nursing students in the faculty of nursing in Alexandria, Egypt. Methods. Data were collected using well-established, psychometrically sound measures of the study variables. Pearson correlation and hierarchical multiple regression were used for analysis. Results. Preliminary findings showed that there is a significant negative correlation between alienation and the following variables; happiness, positive cognition, Personal and social resourcefulness. The moderator role of the positive cognition and learned resourcefulness will be examined on the relationship between alienation and happiness. Conclusion. The results from the study will provide direction for developing effective nursing interventions that strength positive cognition and learned resourcefulness to alleviate alienation and to help adolescents to deal with their problems.
