Abstract

This study examined the factors influencingthe adaptation to university life of nursing students. Data were collected from 235 nursing students in three nursing schools in B and C city from November 15 to December 10, 2016, and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and stepwise multiple regression. Correlations were found between adaptation to university life and life stress (r=-0.657, p<0.001) and between ego-resilience (r=0.455, p<0.001) and spiritual well-being (${\beta}=0.210$, p=0.025)(r=0.494, p<0.001). The adaptation to university life in participants showed a significant correlation between life stress (r=-0.657, p<0.001), ego-resilience (r=0.455, p<0.001), and spiritual well-being (r=0.494, p<0.001). The significant factors influencing the adaptation to university life were life stress (${\beta}=-0.418$, p<0.001), health status(${\beta}=0.213$ p<0.001), spiritual well-being (${\beta}=0.210$, p=0.025), satisfaction with major (${\beta}=0.146$, p=0.003), and ego-resilience (${\beta}=0.109$, p<0.001); these factors explained 56.5% of the variance. The findings suggest that adequate educational strategies are needed to reduce the life stress and increase health status, spiritual well-being, satisfaction on major, and ego-resilience in nursing students to promote their adaptation to university life.
