The results were as follows: 1. The mean score of attitude of health behaviors of the student nurses was 8.11 showing a relatively high level. A high score of health belief was reported in 'self-responsible type' with the score of 4.80 and a high score of 'think for health of disease' was reported in passive type with the score of 3.12 2. Specifically there were significant positive correlations between the level of attitude of health behaviors' and other health related variables such as health perception think for health of disease and age 3.

(37.2%), "Physical body was burdensome and fatigued."(57.3%). 4. The total O.M.I. score ranged from 1 to 89 with an average of 22.91(SD=12.10). A statistically significant difference was observed for the physical. psychological complaints for alcohol consumption. and for the psychological complaints for salt and fatty food intake. These conclusions should provide grounds for future studies of strategies for health promoting lifestyle for nursing students and their health concerns.

Also epidemiologic research methodology, such as prospective cohort study should be considered to explore the performing process of nursing student's health behavior related with the occurrence of diseases.
