Influence of Academic Resilience, Self-Efficacy and Depression on College Life Adjustment in Korea's Nursing College Students


This study is a causal research conducted to identify the factors that influence the adjustment of college students to college life. The statistical analysis results of the questionnaire that was conducted on a total of 185 nursing students were as follows. 1. Adjustment had a strongly positive correlation with academic resilience (r = .717, p = .000) and self-efficacy (r = .427, p = .000), while having a strongly negative correlation with depression (r = -.328, p = .005). 2. The factor that had the largest positive impact on college life adjustment was academic resilience (β = 0.607, p = .000), with an explanatory power of 52.6 (F = 69.101, p = .000). Through this study, academic resilience was identified as having the most positive effect on college life adjustment. As a follow-up, in order to improve college life adjustment, a study to verify the mediating effects of academic resilience and a study to develop programs that would promote academic resilience are suggested.
