본 연구는 간호학생들의 행복감, 행복감 증진을 위한 활동과 자기성찰의 관계를 파악하였다. 현대의 융복합 사회에서 행복의 욕구는 생명과 자유의 권리만큼 중요한 것으로 간주되고 있고 최근 긍정심리학의 등장에 의해 더욱 활기를 띠고 있다. 자료는 D광역시의 일 간호학과 학생 366명을 대상으로, 2014년 10월 2-8일까지 수집하여 SPSS WIN 19.0을 사용, t-test/ANOVA, Correlation, Regression으로 분석하였다. 자기성찰은 4학년과 임상실습을 한 그룹에서 높은 점수로 학년 간 유의한 차이를 나타내었다. 행복감은 경제적 수준이 높을수록 점수가 높았다. 종교가 있고, 경제적 수준이 높은 그룹에서 행복증진 활동을 많이 하는 것으로 나타났다. 행복감은 타인영역의 성찰과 행복감 증진활동과 밀접한 관계를 나타내었다. 행복감의 주요 영향요인은 행복증진활동, 경제적 수준, 자기영역 성찰로 행복감의 26.3%를 설명하였다. 따라서 학생들의 행복감 수준을 향상시키는 것이 중요함을 파악하였다. 행복감과 자기성찰에 대한 다양한 변수를 포함한 방법의 반복연구가 필요하고 행복감과 행복감 증진에 대한 질적 연구를 제언한다.
