Introduction Emotional Intelligence is a vital component in both personal and professional aspects of life. Despite more than 30 years of research, there is still no concrete proof that one concept defines emotional intelligence as the capacity of an individual to recognise, evaluate, and control his or her own and other people's emotions. To measure multifaceted emotional intelligence, there are many different tools and methods. The Emotional Intelligent Quotient is another name for it. It is described as "the capacity of a person to perceive, evaluate, and manage his or her own and other people's emotions."Objectives  To measure the level of emotional intelligence among the nursing students using the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire.  To find the association and co-relation of emotional intelligence with selected socio-demographic variables and related traits.Methodology The study was conducted in Sharda School of Nursing Science And Research, Sharda University. Total of 91 samples who satisfied the inclusive criteria were selected using a probability systematic random sampling technique. The baseline data was collected using demographic performa and structured questionnaire was used to assess the level of emotional intelligence among the nursing students.

Also it was found that the demographic variables- type of family, occupation and income had shown statistically significant association with emotional intelligence among nursing students with chi-square value of p<0.05 level.

The distribution and frequency of emotional intelligence among the nursing students shows that 46% students have high emotional intelligence.Conclusion Present study concluded that majority of study participants have high level of emotional intelligence because of better growth and good parenting of students by housewife mothers as percentage is high 78.2% may be because of more time spent with their children.
