Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate convergent factors which influence nursing students' problem solving abilities. Participants were 224 nursing students selected by convenience sampling at universities in Seoul, Chungnam-do, and Ulsan. Data were collected using a questionnaire from 6 March to 20 April, 2013. The SPSS/WIN 21.0 program was used for data analysis. There were positive correlations between problem solving abilities and critical thinking, empathy, nursing professionalism, self leadership. Participants who had good GPA(Grade point average) and interpersonal relationship more likely to have better problem solving abilities than those who did not. The influencing factors on problem solving abilities of nursing students were critical thinking, empathy, nursing professionalism, self leadership, grade point average, and satisfaction for practicum. These findings imply that we need to develop and apply new instruction strategies on fostering critical thinking, empathy, nursing professionalism, self leadership to improve nursing students' problem solving abilities.
