Background/Objectives: This study was attempted in order to identify the variables influencing the learning self-efficacy of nursing students. The participants of this study were 267 nursing students.
Methods/Statistical Analysis: To investigate the relationship between the main variables, correlation and regression analysis employed the SPSS/PC 22 program.
Findings: The results showed that there was a significant correlation between the main variables of the nursing students. Hierarchical regression analysis was performed to confirm the influence of major variables affecting learning self-efficacy. Results: Satisfaction with friendship, satisfaction with major, communication skills, and problem-solving ability of nursing college students were found to have a significant effect on learning self-efficacy. The explanatory power of related variables was 41.8%, while the problem solving ability was identified as the biggest influence factor (F=48.72, p<.000).
Improvements/Applications: In order to enhance the effectiveness of nursing education, it is important to improve the student's learning self-efficacy. This can be achieved through the development of communication skills and problem-solving ability, as well as satisfaction in friendship and in major.
