This study was carried out in the nursing department of Adnan Menderes University in Aydin, Turkey. The sampling consisted of 524 students who agreed to participate in the research. The data were obtained by Student Introduction Form and Self-regulated Learning Skills Scale developed by Turan (2009) in Turkey. Two-way (ANOVA) variance analysis and Independent T test were used in the analysis of the data. Total score average of the students were determined as 149.34 ± 18.92. The meaningful difference between academic success perception and score average of scale total and the whole sub-dimension was found and generally as success level comes down the scale scores decreases. The findings obtained from this study revealed that self-regulated learning skills in nursing students were at medium-level.
