본 연구는 간호대학생의 다문화접촉경험과 문화적 공감이 다문화수용성에 미치는 영향을 확인하기 위하여 시도되었다. 연구 대상자는 C시의 3개 간호학과 학생 164명이었다. 자료수집은 2017년 11월 15일부터 12월 20일까지 하였다. 자료는 SPSS 23.0을 이용하여 빈도, t-test, one-way ANOVA, 피어슨 상관계수 분석, 다중회귀분석을 하였다. 연구결과 다문화수용성은 정서적 공감(r=.56, p<.001), 인지적 공감( r=.40, p<.001), 다문화접촉경험(r=.16, p=.040)과 양의 상관이 있었다. 다문화수용성에 영향을 주는 요인은 정서적 공감, 인지적 공감이었으며 이들의 설명력은 33.7% 로 나타났다(F=42.47, p<.001). 본 연구에서 정서적 공감과 인지적 공감은 다문화수용성에 양의 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 이러한 본 연구의 결과는 간호대학생의 다문화수용성 향상을 위한 새로운 전략개발에 도움이 될 것이다.
