Abstract: Background/Objectives: This research studied students in RN-BSN to look at their subjectivity on resilience types through the subjectivity methodology (Q-methodology) and explain the characteristics of resilience. Methods/Statistical analysis: For the Q population, 12 nursing students at a university located in D city were selected, and an in-depth interview and literature review were used to select 34 Q samples for Q-sort. P-sample was made with 43 RN-BSN and Q-sort was performed on a 9-point scale according to their subjective agreement. The analysis by PC-QUNAL program resulted in four types. Results: The result of this study showed 57.33% of total variance, with 25 people (58.14%) of Type 1, positive self-satisfaction, 10 (23.26% of Type 2, situation-overcoming problem-solving, and 9 (20.93%) of Type 3, self-determination. Conclusion/Application: As the result of this study suggests, based on classification of resilience of nursing students, intervention program for nursing students will need to be developed and different, individualised intervention strategies provided.
