Descriptive and statistical analysis was carried out. Results: There was a moderate correlation among all the parameters. Competency was positively correlated to sensitivity. There was significant correlation between Dimensions and overall EQ. The computed t value shows that there wass significant correlation between overall Emotional Quotient and dimensions such as sensitivity (t=6.6), maturity (t =7.4), competency (t=10.2) at 0.05 level of significance. The mean post test values sensitivity = 90, maturity = 124, competence = 185, overall EQ = 399 were higher than mean pre test values sensitivity = 86.1, maturity = 110.8, competence = 166, overall EQ = 363. The computed t value sensitivity = 2.1, maturity = 5.8, competence = 5.6, overall EQ = 7.52 was more than the table value at 0.05 level of significance, which shows there is significant relationship between emotional intelligence scores pre and post intervention.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is fundamental to the nursing profession because it facilitates the processing of emotional information for individualized and improved patient care through effective communication and therapeutic relationships. Objectives: To identify the Emotional Intelligence level of graduate nursing students, To analyse the effect of emotional intelligence training on emotional intelligence of graduate nursing students pre and post intervention & to correlate the dimension of EI and the total EI of graduate nursing students. Methods: Descriptive study with experimental design was used. Total 30 BSc Graduate Nursing students from selected college were selected through purposive sampling. Pre test was done using modified emotional quotient test scale. Intervention of 2 hrs of emotional intelligence training session was administered. After 1 week post test was conducted. Descriptive and statistical analysis was carried out. Results: There was a moderate correlation among all the parameters. Competency was positively correlated to sensitivity. There was significant correlation between Dimensions and overall EQ. The computed t value shows that there wass significant correlation between overall Emotional Quotient and dimensions such as sensitivity (t=6.6), maturity (t =7.4), competency (t=10.2) at 0.05 level of significance. The mean post test values sensitivity = 90, maturity = 124, competence = 185, overall EQ = 399 were higher than mean pre test values sensitivity = 86.1, maturity = 110.8, competence = 166, overall EQ = 363. The computed t value sensitivity = 2.1, maturity = 5.8, competence = 5.6, overall EQ = 7.52 was more than the table value at 0.05 level of significance, which shows there is significant relationship between emotional intelligence scores pre and post intervention. Thus emotional intelligence training is effective on increasing emotional intelligence (EQ).
