 Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a happiness choice program based on reality therapy on subjective well-being and interpersonal relations in nursing students. Methods: A nonequivalent control group pre-posttest design was used. The participants were 45 nursing students, 22 in the experimental group, and 23 in the control group. They were from 2 different colleges of nursing located in 2 regions. The happiness choice program based on reality therapy was held 6 times over 6 weeks, taking 120 minutes per session. Nursing students' subjective well-being and interpersonal relations were measured. SPSS 18.0 using the -test, t-test, and paired t-test were used in data analysis. Results: Nursing students in the experimental group showed significantly higher life satisfaction (t=3.81, p<.001), positive emotion (t=2.09, p=.042), and interpersonal relations (t=4.11, p<.001), while significantly lower negative emotion (t=-2.59, p=.013). Conclusion: The findings of this study suggest that a happiness choice program based on reality therapy could be a useful intervention for improving subjective well-being and interpersonal relations of nursing students.
