In Korea, 11.6% of middle and high school students reported attempting suicide, which is a higher rate than that for the U.S. counterparts. The prevalence of suicidal ideation was higher than the rate of suicide attempt and it may be the earliest possible recognition of suicidal tendencies. Therefore assessing suicidal ideation can be the most preventable action for suicide. There is a paucity of suicidal ideation and its related factors specific to middle school students. Since middle school age is on the process of developing one's personality, it is a proper period for nurses to intervene suicidal ideation. Participants' anger was measured with the Multidimensional Anger Inventory (MAI) developed by Siegel and translated by Lee. Depression was measured with Children's Depression Inventory developed by Kovacs and translated by Cho and Lee. Finally, suicidal ideation was measured using the Suicidal Ideation Questionnaire (SIQ), which was developed by Reynolds and translated by Shin. This 30-item scale assesses the frequency of suicidal ideation in the past month. Data were analyzed using the SPSS/WIN 12.0. Descriptive statistics were used to explain the characteristics of the study participants. Cronbach's alpha coefficients were calculated for each scale. Pearson's, partial & Spearman correlation coefficients were used to explore the relationships of suicidal ideation, depression, anger status and other variables (gender, satisfaction of life, grade, self-assessed economic and health status). Stepwise multiple regression analysis was performed to explore which factors predict suicidal ideation. Among the 258 study participants, 160 (62%) were boys and 98 (38%) were girls. Among the variables, depression, anger, gender, satisfaction of school life, and health status were correlated with suicidal ideation. As the results of stepwise regression, level of depression contributed most significantly to suicidal ideation, followed by level of anger and gender. These three predictor variables explained 44.6% of the variance in suicidal ideation.
