students’ intention in eating daily breakfast
The Research on the Intentions of eating daily breakfast - Nursing School Students as an example Abstract The purpose of this study was to predict and to explain students’ intention in eating daily breakfast on the basis of the theory of Reasoned Action and Self-efficacy theory. The surveyed subjects were students from Tao-yuan Thinshin Nursing School of the first, the second, and the third grade. By stratified cluster sampling method, 638 respondents (94% response rate) were selected to participate in this study. The open-questionnaires and the structured questionnaires were used to collect data. The main findings of this study were: (1) The majority of students (81.6%) did have intention in eating daily breakfast and 15% exhibited no intention at all. (2) The intentions of eating daily breakfast could be predicted by attitude, subjective norm, and self-efficacy. The explained variance was 34%. Self-efficacy appears to be the most influential factor; attitude is the second one. (3) Attitude was found to be significantly positive correlated with the sum of product with behavioral beliefs and outcome evaluation. And the subjective norm was found to be significantly positive correlated with the sum of product with normative beliefs and motivation to comply. (4) Whether there were intentions to eat breakfast or not was shown to differ significantly on behavioral belief, evaluation, normative belief, motivation to comply, and self-efficacy. (5) When the theory of Reasoned Action and Self-efficacy theory are applied to predict the daily breakfast behavioral intentions, the result of this study supports the research assumptions of theories
