Method: The research design for this study was a descriptive survey design with a convenience sample. Data collection was done using self-report questionnaires with 424 college students. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient and multiple linear regression. Results: Most of the students had received CPR training (58.3%) and 17% of the students had given help on request in an emergency situation. But only 11.3% of them performed CPR. The mean scores for knowledge of CPR and attitude toward CPR by students were $5.79{pm}2.41$, $33.8{pm}6.53$, respectively. The 18.3% of explained variance for attitude toward CPR was significantly explained by gender, age, having received CPR training and knowledge of CPR. Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study the development of CPR training programs which are tailored to personal characteristics of college students are necessary to improve attitudes toward CPR. Further nursing research is needed on the characteristics of college students associated with attitude toward cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Key words: CPR | Attitude | Knowledge 주요어: 심폐소생술 | 태도 | 지식
