[Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the lived experience of nursing students' career planning. Methods: Purposive sampling was used to recruit 10 students in a 5-year junior nursing college in Taiwan. The interviews were both hand-recorded and videotaped on site, with permission from the participants, and then transcribed into verbatim narratives for data analysis. Content analysis was used to identify items in relation to career planning across narratives. Results: The findings showed the inductive emergence of seven major categories: urge to career decision making; conformity with social trends and expectations; self-evaluation, establishing a specific goal; making alternative and longer-term plans; hesitation to choose the hard way; plunging into preparatory action; and self-management and accommodation. Conclusion: The results of this study can help the relevant school departments design career-planning activities for students.
