Introduction: Due to negative attitudes of society to discipline, the gap between theory and practice, and lack of satisfaction in clinical settings, learning motivation and self esteem in nursing students is low. Life Skills Training could be effective in promoting the self esteem and Learning Motivation. This study aims to assess the effectiveness of life skills training (LST) on learning motivation (Intrinsic and extrinsic), academic achievement and self-esteem in nursing students of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran. Method: In this quasi-experimental pre-and posttest setting, 160 nursing students were participated from Tabriz and Maragheh Nursing faculties during 2014-2015. Students were divided into experimental and control groups using random sampling. Harter Academic motivation and Rosenberg self-esteem scales were used as the study instruments. The semester scores were compared before and after the intervention. Data were analyzed using descriptive (frequency and mean) and inferential statistics (paired and independent t tests, analysis of co-variance and chi-square) with SPSS version 21. Results: Mean scores of post and pre-test of motivation, academic achievement, and self-esteem in the experimental group were significantly increased after the training (P<0.05). By adjusting the effect of pre-test, differences in post-test scores of achievement, intrinsic -learning, motivation, and self-esteem between the experimental and control groups were significant (p<0.01). The intervention could explain 18%, 5%, 11%, and 71% of the variance of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation for learning, academic achievement, and self-esteem, respectively. Conclusion: Life Skills Training was effective in improving learning motivation, academic achievement and self-esteem, emphasizing the necessity of social skill training. It is recommended that, along with other educational programs, medical sciences university’s hold programs for teaching life skills and promoting mental health.
