Abstract: The research sought to examine the association between performance self - esteem (i. e., self - worth regarding academic performance) and stress (perceived and physiological) on end of semester grade point average (GPA) in Nursing college students. It is hypothesized that the effect of performance self - esteem on GPA at the end of the semester will vary by stress. In the two parts longitudinal study participants completed measures to assess performance self - esteem and perceived stress. Participants also provided two saliva samples to assess the steroid hormone cortisol, before and after an acute lab stressor task. Participants were for permission for the researchers to access their official GPA from the college office. The results showed the effects of perceived stress and performance self - esteem on GPA varied by Gender. Physiological stress was not found to have an association with GPA and did not interact with performance self - esteem to predict GPA.
