This study aims to investigate the effects of self-efficacy and self-directed learning readiness to self-leadership of nursing students. The data of self-efficacy, self-directed learning readiness and self-leadership was collected for the nursing students of K university in K city from Sep. 2015 to Nov. 2015. The results show that self-efficacy is different according to subjects' age, and self-directed learning readiness is different according to the grade. The correlations among self-efficacy, self-directed learning readiness and self-leadership are significant, and the self-directed learning readiness is a significant predictor of self-leadership. It is expected that the nursing students will be able to act as a leader in clinical practice and health care by promoting self-directed learning readiness from the university education, and it is required to develop and operate the self-directed learning readiness program including the opinions of learners.

본 연구는 간호대학생들의 자기효능감과 자기주도학습준비도가 셀프리더십에 미치는 융복합적 요인을 확인하고자 하였다. 자료수집을 위해 2015년 9월부터 2015년 11월까지 K시에 위치한 K대학교 간호학과 학생 273명을 대상으로 자기효능감, 자기주도학습준비도, 셀프리더십에 대한 자료를 수집하여 분석하였다. 연구결과 자기효능감은 연령에 따른 차이가 있었으며, 자기주도학습준비도는 학년에 따른 차이가 있는 것으로 나타났다. 또한 자기효능감, 자기주도학습준비도, 셀프리더십은 서로 유의한 순 상관관계가 있는 것으로 나타났으며, 자기주도학습준비도는 셀프리더십의 유의한 예측요인인 것으로 나타났다. 본 연구결과를 통해 간호대 학생들의 대학교육에서부터 자기주도학습 준비도 증진을 위해 노력함으로써 간호대학생들이 향후 임상현장 및 보건의료 각 분야에서 리더의 역할을 수행할 수 있을 것으로 여겨지므로 학습자의 의견을 포함한 자기주도학습준비도 향상 프로그램 개발과 운영이 요구된다.
