The purpose of this study is to examine nursing students' satisfaction and to analyze satisfaction difference according to the general characteristics of the research subjects in blended learning. A survey was conducted for 4th grade nursing students who took 'Introduction to Nursing I (1)' course and agreed to participate in the study. 122 answers out of total 142 were analyzed. The findings are as follows; first, students' satisfaction was topped by off-line learning, followed by on-line learning, and blended learning; second, there was a difference in on-line learning satisfaction depending on the gender among the general characteristics of the research subjects, and also there was a significant difference in off-line learning satisfaction depending on the self-evaluation on grade; third, students pointed out that what needs to be improved most is technical support and system. This study would provide the measures to improve utilization and effectiveness of blended learning, and the basic data to establish university policies for the blended learning.
