What is it about?
It is crucial to evaluate student academic motivation and self-directed learning (SDL) readiness while teaching online or flexibly. During the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, there were few investigations on the link between academic motivation and SDL readiness. We recruited 1187 nursing students from 4 nursing colleges in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, and Thailand.

Why is it important?
Nursing students reported extrinsic motivation is the most important aspect of academic success. Most nursing students exhibited SDL readiness, whereas “desire for learning” was rated the highest dimension of SDL readiness. We found significant differences in nursing students' intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and amotivation between the three countries. Finally, country, gender, and intrinsic motivation were significant predictors of the nursing students' SDL readiness.
