ABSTRACT

The purposes of this study were to identify the factors affecting the nursing students’ problem-solving ability. Data were collected through a self-report questionnaire survey conducted between September 1 to October 10, 2017 from 200 students enrolled in three different nursing colleges in Busan and Yangsan in Korea. The variables such as critical thinking disposition, resilience, creativity and problem-solving ability were measured. Critical thinking disposition, resilience and situational adaptability had significantly positive effects on problem-solving ability (R-squared: 48.2%) and critical thinking disposition was found to be the most significant factor for problem-solving ability among nursing students. The results from this study suggest that critical thinking disposition, resilience and situational adaptability should be considered as the main influential factors when developing intervention strategies to enhance the problem-solving ability of nursing students in Korea.
