Abstract
Grit is defined as "perseverance and passion for long-term goals" by psychologist Angela Duckworth and colleagues (2007), who extensively studied grit as a personality trait. The aim of the present study was to investigate the reliability and validity of the standardized tool The Grit Scale (Grit-O) among Indian nurses. The sample of 349 nurses were included and assessed with The Grit Scale (Grit-O) developed by Duckworth et al. (2007). Reliability and validity have been proved with the help of exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). The model showed moderate goodness-of-fit. The results supported multidimensionality of the scale. Cronbach’s Alpha and Validity measures were also calculated. The 12 item grit scale provides a valid and reliable scale to measure grit among Indian nurses.
