The purpose of this study was to identify the factors contributing to female university nursing students’ intention of breast milk storage.
Participants in the survey for this study were 680 students in 3 university of 3 cities. The data were collected using self-report structured questionnaires and analyzed using descriptive statistics of a mean±sd, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, and hierarchical regression analysis with SPSS/Win 22.0 programme.
The average intention level for breast milk storage was 10.80±2.31 out of a 15 point scale, slightly over the half, which means the degree of feasibility to implement breastfeeding in the future. Based on the regression analysis of the survey results, it was found that the major factors influencing the intention to breast milk storage include attitude (β=0.39, p<0.001), norm (β=0.34, p<0.001), maternity nursing subject completion status (β=0.21, p<0.001), class year (β=0.18, p<0.001), knowledge for breast milk storage (β=0.16, p<0.001), and smoking (β=0.06, p=0.038). These factors explained 42.7% of the female university nursing students’ intention to store breast milk storage.
These factors should be considered in the development of breast milk storage education programs for woman.
