Methods: A cross-sectional census with a sample of 205 male nurse graduated from 20 schools was conducted in Taiwan by mailing questionnaire at summer, 2009.Results: The response rate are 71.2%(N=146). The mean age of the subjects was 21.6 +/- 1.9, and most of the subjects were BSN prepared (n = 84, 56.5%). The model for male student nurses choosing nursing as career was determined by logistic regression. The predictive validity was 77.9% , and professional commitment and enrolled nursing program by parents' opinion were predictive factors.
