Background: Nursing students experience many challenges in their life when entering adolescents and confronting nursing responsibilities. This study aimed to explore the undergraduate nursing students’ strategies in confronting with living challenges. Materials and methods: A conventional content analysis approach used.   Nursing students were selected in a purposeful sampling method from universities in Khoy and Tabriz (Iran) and qualitative unstructured interviews were held with 18 undergraduate nursing students. Results: nine strategies were emerged: “Applying the problem-solving process”, “Self-controlling in stressful pressures”, “Maintaining interpersonal relationships”, “Ask for help to remove obstacles”, “Relying on own abilities and beliefs”, “Organizing the financial situations”, “Avoid from unpleasant situations”, “Impulsive behavior with adverse conditions”, and “Rule-based problem solving”. Conclusions: A deeper understanding of life management strategies can be a useful guide for the educational system and can help students and families to overcome stressful situations.
