Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify university students' willingness to write advance directives and factors related to this willingness.
Method: A cross-sectional survey design was used and 400 nursing students and 287 non-nursing students participated in the study. Data were collected by convenience sampling using self-report questionnaires. Data were analyzed with descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, correlation, and multiple regression.
Results: The mean score for willingness to write advance directives was 4.09. From the multiple regression analysis, predictors of willingness to write advance directives were found to be majoring in nursing, awareness of advance directives, preference for autonomous decision making related to the end of life care, family preference related to the end of life care, and self esteem.
Conclusion: The study results indicate that various factors are related to willingness to write advance directives and nurses need to consider client characteristics, knowledge, and own values when taking care of issues on advance directives.
