Sažetak

Persons in leadership positions are more likely to manifest hubristic symptomatology, the longer the person exercises power and
the greater the power they exercise. No data exists for healthcare staff, such as nurses and more specifically for gerontological
nurses who exercise power on their colleagues as well as older persons. This study aims to examine whether there are emotional
correlates of gerontological 􀁑􀁘􀁕􀁖􀁈􀁖􀂶􀀃experienced hubris when serving in a leadership position, and to investigate possible gender
differences during SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, a little investigated period regarding its emotional aspects on healthcare professionals.
Gerontological nurses in leadership positions completed Job Affect Scale, Emotional Labour Scale, Emotion Regulation
Questionnaire, Generalized Immediacy Scale, General Index of Job Satisfaction, Maslach Burnout Inventory, Wong-Law Emotional
Intelligence Scale, State-Anxiety-Inventory, Perceived Cohesion Scale, and a 5-point Likert scale measuring hubristic attributes. No
statistically significant differences were found between male and female nurses regarding the abovementioned classic administered
emotional scales and hubris. The analyses yielded only a negative correlation between negative affect and hubris. This research
provides for the first time data regarding gerontological nurses in leadership positions, suggesting that various negative and positive
emotional variables do no directly relate to hubristic symptoms for this group of healthcare professionals. As hubristic behaviors and
their dangerous consequences are found not to be related to abovementioned emotional variables, researchers and hospital
managers should consider and focus on other indices in their attempt to prevent such phenomena.
