dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between self-efficacy and academic motivation on student achievement among baccalaureate nursing students as measured by Grade Point Average (GPA). A quantitative research method was used for this study. The research used self-reported GPA from the fall of 2016. The General Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (GSE) and the Academic Motivation Survey (AMS-28) were used for this study. Statistical analysis was computed from a sample of eighty-one study subjects using stepwise regression, Pearson r correlation, and ANOVA. The statistical data were computed using SPSS version 23.0. The correlation between self-efficacy and GPA was statistically significant. Four of the six correlations related to academic motivation were found to be statistically significant with the largest of the correlations being between GPA and extrinsic motivation identified and GPA with intrinsic motivation to know being the second highest. Pearson correlations between GPA with the four demographic variables (age, gender, race, and student classification) were discussed. The correlations for age, gender and race were not significant. However, there was a significant positive correlation between GPA with student classification rank, specifically seniors. The final 2-variable ANOVA model (N=81) was significant and accounted for 24.6% of the variance in the student’s GPA. Implications and research for leaders in nursing education and recommendations for future research studies were also discussed.
