Questionnaires were collected from 149 freshmen after 12 hours classes for four weeks from October 1st to 30th 2013. Group Embedded Figure Test was used as a cognitive style measurement tool. 62.4% of them were field-dependent. There was a significant difference in cognitive style and ethical knowledge according to high school division. The ethical value was different significantly according to the nursing science satisfaction. Class satisfaction was different significantly according to reason for applying to nursing and nursing science satisfaction. There were no significant differences in ethical knowledge and values by cognitive style. Class satisfaction was higher in field-dependent students.
