Objective. Assessing self-esteem in nursing students of a HEI in Monteria in times
of pandemic COVID-19, in the light of Rosemberg's Self-Esteem Theory.
Methodology. Cross-sectional quantitative descriptive study. A sample of 130
nursing students from a higher education institution in Monteria was taken from the
total population 365. Rosemberg's self-esteem scale was applied through the form
in the Google Forms application with 4 sections: Informed consent, personal
characteristics questionnaire, Rosemberg self-esteem scale and gratitude. Results.
Out of 130 participating students, the average age was 21 years. The self-esteem
assessment is dominated by the high category with 39.2%. The dimension of selfconfidence or personal satisfaction (positive self-esteem) corresponds to 15.41, and
self-contempt or personal devaluation (negative self-esteem) to 13.07. Pearson's
Chi-square statistic revealed relationships between "perception of mental health"
and self-esteem, with a p-value of "0.000". Conclusion. The assessment of the
Rosemberg self-esteem scale evidences the presence of difficulties in some of its
dimensions, with the perception of the pandemic as a fundamental stressor.
