The purpose of this study was to clarify the Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy of the 4th year students of Nursing University and its influential factors. We conducted a questionnaire survey of 4th grade students of Nursing University and analyzed valid responses from 85 people. As a result, Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy was found to be related to the total learning motivation and the subfactors [independent learning behavior], [expectations for practical training / exercises], and [appropriateness for small group learning]. Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy tended to be higher for those with higher learning motivation. In addition, the Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy tended to be higher when there were many friends outside the university. In order to enhance the self-efficacy of career choices as a nurse, it is necessary to educate the 4th year students of the Nursing University, considering that learning motivation and friends outside the university are influential factors.
