Abstract:

In this descriptive cross-sectional study we explored the relationship between locus of control (LOC) and mental health status of students enrolled in a four year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program that uses problem-based learning. There was a significant, positive, moderate relationship between the general health and LOC scores. First- and second-year students had lower internal LOC and were at higher risk of mental health problems, compared to third- and fourth-year students, suggesting that they require increased support from faculty staff as they make the transition from school to university and a new style of learning. The nursing faculty needs to use strategies to enhance internal LOC in students.
