          This study is a descriptive research. The purpose of this research aimed to study the level of resilience quotient (RQ) and factors related to resilience quotient of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients receiving hemodialysis. The participant comprised of 41 ESRD patients, undertaken hemodialysis treatment at Hemodialysis clinic, Surin Hospital. Simple random sampling technique was used to get participants. The research instruments included 4 parts: 1) Demographic data 2) Mental health stress test 3) The depression questionnaire and 4) Resilience Quotient questionnaire. Cronbach’s Alpha Coefficient was used to find the reliability of three questionnaires which were .89, .81, and .91 respectively. Percentage, mean and standard deviation were used for demographic data.  The correlation was tested by Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation (r), and Chi-Square (gif.latex?x^{\2} ).

          Research results were as follows:

          1) Most ESRD patients receiving hemodialysis had resilience quotient at normal level (75.61 percent). Six of them had a higher level of resilience quotient than normal level (14.63 percent) and it was found that females had higher levels of resilience quotient than male (16.67 and 11.77 percent respectively).

          2) There were significant correlations between marital status, education level, monthly income, stress, depression and RQ at .05level.

                 The study suggests that nurses who take care of patients receiving hemodialysis should develop a program to promote resilience quotient. In addition, patients’ marital status, education level, monthly income, stress, depression should be considered when tailoring the program to promote the patients’ resilience quotient.
