Psychological Capital (PsyCap) is a set of internal resources consisting of hope, efficacy, resiliency, and optimism-or HERO—that help navigate personal and professional obstacles to achieve success and foster leadership growth. Because nurses hold a multidimensional and evolving role, serving as educators, change agents, leaders, and mentors, nurses often need to extend their bandwidth to meet the continuous challenges of their profession. As nurses continue to manage the increasing demands, they need a robust set of internal resources to help them be successful.
