Very little research is available about young women's breast self examination (BSE) health belief and practice. The purpose of descriptive study was to determine midwifery students' health beliefs intended for breast self examination. This research included 128 midwifery students. Data were collected using self-administrated questionnaires and Champion's Health Belief Scale, and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t test, and Mann-whitney U test. Results found midwifery students' BSE health belief scores to be high for perceived seriously, health motivation, and benefits; moderate for perceived sensitivity and self-efficacy; and low for perceived barriers.
