The purpose of this study is to understand the family support, self-efficacy in career decision-making, and type of career decision-making among nursing students and to investigate the relationship between family support as an environmental factor. In total, 226 students from two nursing colleges in the D area were surveyed using a self-entry questionnaire on general characteristics, family support, career decision-making self-efficacy, and career decision-making type. Hierarchical regression was conducted to examine the effects of family support of career nursing students on career decision-making and its self-efficacy. Factors influencing career decision-making self-efficacy were major satisfaction (p <.000) and satisfaction of clinical practice (p <.000) in the nursing department. Also, there was an additional contribution of family support (p <.000). Thus, it was found that nursing students had higher career satisfaction self-efficacy, satisfaction with their major, satisfaction with clinical practice, and higher family support. Therefore, in order to improve the career decision-making self-efficacy among nursing students, the fourth-grade advisor who prepares for employment will inform the students about the necessity of family support through lectures and interviews with not only students but also students to develop efficient curriculum and improve family support. In addition to sharing information about knowledge and learning methods, there is a need to raise awareness of the major through communication with colleagues and seniors.
