Purpose: This study was conducted in order to explore the factors affecting the hope in nursing students. Methods: A total of 166 nursing students participated in the study. Data was analyzed using SPSS WIN 18.0. Results: The mean scores for social support, self-efficacy, and hope were above-average level. There were significant mean differences in hope according to religion, academic achievement, and satisfaction with nursing majors. Hope correlated positively with social support and self-efficacy. The significant predictors of hope included social support and satisfaction with the nursing major. The regression model explained 12.7% of hope. Conclusion: To improve hope in nursing students, nursing educators should focus on promoting their social support and satisfaction with the nursing major.
