The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship among college life adjustment, grit, and self-leadership in nursing students. The participants were 252 nursing students from 3 universities. Data collection was conducted from May to June 2017. The collected data were analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics 22.0. Data were analyzed using an independent sample t-test, a Pearson s correlation coefficient, and a logistic regression. There was a positive correlation between college life adjustment and grit (r=0.596, p<0.001), college life adjustment and self-leadership (r=0.535, p<0.001), and grit and self-leadership (r=0.488, p<0.001). Analysis of the differences in grit and self-leadership scores according to college life adjustment score groups, revealed that the group with high college adjustment score had higher grit (t=-9.725, p<0.001) and self-leadership scores (t=-8.942, p<0.001) as compared to the group with a low adjustment score. The logistic analysis showed the odds ratio for grit was 4.397 (p<0.001, CI: 2.581–7.492) and that for self-leadership was 6.400 (p<0.001, CI: 3.683–11.121). To facilitate effective college life adjustment in nursing students, it is necessary to develop programs to improve grit and self-leadership.
