Abstract: Background: Trends towards a nuclear family unit, a decline in birth rate, and lack of community relationships make it difficult for adolescents to improve parental readiness in Japanese society. Low parenting skills will be a risk factor for high parenting stress or child abuse. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the factors associated with parental readiness amongst Japanese female undergraduate nursing students. Methods: The study design is cross-sectional. An anonymous self-reported questionnaire survey was distributed to 225 female undergraduate nursing students from Kyushu, Japan, and the factors associated with parental readiness were examined. Results: Of the 225 recipients, 208 responded to the questionnaire. Multiple linear regression analysis showed that the parental readiness score was significantly higher in the following groups: students who lived alone or without parents (regression coefficient: β = 1.82, p = .027), students who often interacted with children (β = 1.88, p = .018), students who wanted to give birth (β = 5.72, p = .007), and students who wanted to rear children as their own parents did (β = 2.73, p = .009). Conclusions: The factors associated with parental readiness were living without parents, experiences interacting with children, desire to give birth, and desire to rear children as their own parents did.
