A correlation was found between selfefficacy perception and problem-solving, however it was statistically significant (r=-0.60, p<0.01).The students who attend of family’s decisions, whose decisions were appreciated and selected the nursing profession voluntarily had higher self-efficacy perceptions (p<0.01).
