The study adopted a descriptive research design, where simple random sampling was used to collect data from 35 B.Sc. (Nursing) students from a selected nursing college in Bangalore. The subjects’ were assessed using the Rosenberg's self-esteem scale. The objectives were to study the socio demographic profile of the subjects, to assess the level of self-esteem and to find the association between self-esteem and selected socio demographic variables. Majority i.e. 24(68.6%) of the subjects reported to have normal level of self-esteem; while, 11(31.4%) of them have low self-esteem. None of the subjects demonstrated to have high self-esteem. The total scores of self-esteem among the nursing students ranged from minimum score of 12 to a maximum of 18. The mean score of total Rosenberg's self-esteem scale was 15.08±1.462. The domain wise scores on the Rosenberg's self-esteem scale varied from 15–18 with mean score of 15.76±0.759 in normal range of self-esteem, 12–14 with mean score of 13.27 ± 0.749 in low self-esteem. There was significant association found between subjects self-esteem and father's and mother's education with the p value of 0.04 and 0.015 respectively. There was also significant association noted between subjects’ self-esteem and parents’ occupation with p < 0.01. The results of the study can be useful to nursing educators whose efforts are focused on promoting professional identity development of future nurses.
