Abstract

To provide baseline data for interventions to improve nursing students' satisfaction with their major, this descriptive correlational study analyzed the relationships among emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and major satisfaction. To set up the research data, questionnaires were collected from 232 nursing students in 3 nursing colleges of cities K and B from May 15th, 2014 to June 15th, 2014. SPSS 21.0 was used to analyze the data for the descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe's test, and Pearson correlation coefficients. The results are as follows. First, the mean scores of emotional intelligence (4.93), critical thinking (3.43), and major satisfaction (3.76) were above the moderate level but showed significant differences according to gender, grades, and motivations for choosing the major and challenges in college life. Positive correlations were observed among emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and major satisfaction Therefore, when designing an intervention program to improve the major satisfaction, it is recommended to consider a plan that enables them to develop emotional intelligence and critical thinking.
