This study is a descriptive correlation study to explore the intention of nursing for patients with COVID-19 among nurses in a tertiary hospital in Seoul, and to identify factors influencing the nursing intention. Data were collected from 239 nurses with more than 6 months of working experience from December 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. Data were analyzed by t-test, ANOVA, Scheffé test, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and Hierarchical multiple regression using the SPSS WIN 24.0 program. According to a result of this study, the score of participant's nursing intention for patients with COVID-19 was an average of 4.48 points out of 7 points. Factors influencing the nursing intention were control beliefs, position, positive behavior beliefs, negative behavior beliefs, and normative beliefs: Among the factors influencing nursing intentions, control beliefs have been shown to have the greatest influence. These variables accounted for 65.2% of the variance in the nursing intention. Therefore, to increase the nursing intention for patients with COVID-19, it is necessary to educate and train nurses to strengthen their confidence in caring the patients. In addition, repeated studies were suggested with extended sample in other settings and to find other factors influencing the nursing intention.
