Abstract: The purpose of this study is to identify the subjectivity of dating violence, to describe the characteristics of the types of dating violence, to identify the types of dating violence, and to apply the Q methodology. 40 college students attending H University in Chungcheongnam-do were asked to classify 59 statements about dating violence. The collected data were analyzed using QUANL PC program. As a result of this study, there were two types of dating violence perceived by nursing college students. The types of dating violence that nursing students perceive are ‘physical violence type’, ‘personality ideal type’, ‘anger expression type’ and ‘relationship–oriented type’. This is because nursing students want to explore subjective perceptions of dating violence and provide basic data for nursing and education interventions for nursing subjects exposed to dating violence.
