The aim of this study was to identify the significant predictors of subjective happiness for male nursing students. Collecting data from 171 male nursing students, we carried out t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe test, Pearson correlation coefficient, and stepwise multiple regression on SPSS Win 20.0. The significant predictors of subjective happiness for male nursing students were self-esteem, gratitude disposition, perceived relationship of peer, and flow. These factors explained 56.1% of subjective happiness. The results suggest that an effective approach to happiness promotion program for male nursing students should consider self-esteem, gratitude disposition, perceived relationship of peer, and flow.
