Methods: The sample of the research consists of final year students studying at Artvin Çoruh University Vocational School of Health Services . A survey form defining the descriptive characteristics and the Beck Hopelessness Scale were applied to 230 students included in the study. The SPSS 16.0 package program was used to evaluate the data. The data are expressed in numbers and percentages. T-Test and ANOVA were used in the evaluation of numerical data.

Results: 40% of the students are primary and emergency help students, 33.5% are child development, 11.7% are pharmacy services and 14.8% are old-school program students. It has been found that the total hopelessness scores of students, aged 24 or older who chose the program on their own, are significantly low in students who stated that they would find a job in a period shorter than 6 months, who had no concerns about employment and whose education type is an evening education. It has been found that 45.7% of the participants preferred this program because it was their ideal program; 63.5% said that they were interested in the program and 25.2% preferred it (in order) to have a diploma.

Conclusion: It has been found that the level of hopelessness of final year students about finding a job differs significantly according to some parameters. It has been seen that hopelessness scores do not lead to differences between programs. The gender factor and place of stay have not changed the overall hopelessness score significantly. When the estimated time that students think they will get a job gets longer, the total hopelessness score increases. Keywords : Student, hopelessness, finding job
