MedLine Citation:
PMID:  22914278     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Admission to nursing programs is highly competitive. Students strive for excellence, but their pursuit of perfectionism may become unhealthy. The author explores current literature to help faculty understand differences in adaptive perfectionism versus maladaptive perfectionism, recognize the signs of maladaptive perfectionism, be aware of the influencing forces, distinguish common effects from critical manifestations, and explore intervention strategies.
