The conceptual framework for this study was Self-efficacy (Bandura, 1977), based on Social Cognitive Theory (Bandura, 1986). The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between exercise knowledge and exercise self-efficacy for the prevention of osteoporosis in young adults. Population selection was based on clinical research findings that bone health is affected by habits early in life, such as calcium intake and establishing regular exercise, which affect bone health in later years. The study was a secondary data analysis of 353 females and males 18 to 35 years of age, primarily Caucasian (92.9%). Results from descriptive statistics demonstrated no statistically significant relationship between osteoporosis knowledge and exercise self-efficacy for the prevention of osteoporosis. (r=0.02). Additional findings revealed a generally low level of osteoporosis knowledge. The mean Osteoporosis Knowledge Test score was 10.81 (SD=2.27), out of a possible score of 0 - 16, and a moderately high level of exercise self-efficacy. The mean Osteoporosis Self-Efficacy Exercise score was 71.43 (SD=20.62) out of a possible score of 0 – 100. These results conclude that nurses need to design educational programs that address knowledge deficits of the young adult population, as those identified in this young adult population. This information is valuable in developing programs that address specific knowledge deficits of at risk populations. Opportunities to educate individuals regarding osteoporosis knowledge of exercise and general osteoporosis knowledge need to be stressed throughout the lifespan to encourage health promoting and health responsive behaviors. Additionally, further study should be conducted with diverse ethnic populations to determine to what extent the results of this study generalize to other multicultural groups. AN: MN030297
