The purpose of this study was to provide basic information for the development of an educational program and a school adaptation program both of which aim to improve the nursing college students` satisfaction with their department. The participants were 235 nursing students at four different colleges located in B U City. A questionnaire survey was conducted on those students to determine their ego-resiliency, view of the nursing profession, and satisfaction with the nursing department. The data were collected from October 16th to November 25th, 2015. The collected data were analyzed using a t-test and ANOVA in accordance with SPSS 18.0. A post-test was then conducted through a test, Pearson`s correlation coefficient, and the stepwise multiple regression. These findings can be summarized as follows. All factors affecting nursing the students` satisfaction with their department had an explanatory power of 25.3%. Of those factors, the view of the nursing profession was highest in the explanatory power, or 19.9%. That power increased to 24.4% when ego-resiliency was added as another factor. This also increased to 25.3% when peer relations were added. Based on the study results, this study suggests that it is necessary to develop and apply an educational strategy to improve the nursing profession for the nursing department.
