The purpose of this study was to compare health promotion lifestyles and self-esteem of nursing students in Korea and China. METHODS: With a descriptive comparative design, a total of 305 Korean and 317 Chinese nursing students were recruited. The health promotion lifestyles was measured by Walker's Health-promoting Lifestyle Profile II instrument and self esteem was measured by Rosenberg's self esteem instrument. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and multiple regression. RESULTS: Korean students showed significantly higher levels of health responsibility, nutritional habit, interpersonal relations, and spiritual growth compared with Chinese students, but physical activity was higher in Chinese students. The factors influencing health promotion lifestyle were self-esteem, nation, and satisfaction of school life. The levels of health promotion lifestyles positively correlated with self-esteem in Korean and Chinese nursing students. CONCLUSION: Nurse educators should consider to develop health-promoting activities and programs reflecting curricular and cross-cultural perspectives.
