Objectives: This study was carried out to evaluate the impact of interpersonal communication competence and family communication patterns on the level of academic resilience. Methods/Statistical analysis: The data for a total of 259 nursing students were analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-tests, an ANOVA, Pearson’s correlations and hierarchical regression using the IBM SPSS 22.0 program. Findings: Interpersonal communication competence was significantly correlated with conversation-oriented family communication patterns and academic resilience (p <.001). The factors instep 1 of the regression analysis indicated several factors with significant impact on academic resilience: whether participants resided with family, interpersonal relationships, personality, and academic achievement. In step 2, academic achievement, interpersonal-communication competence, and conversation-oriented family communication patterns were identified as factors. Improvements/Applications: Remediation should reflect the different types of communication skills needed to promote academic resilience.
