  Background & Aims: During the nursing education, students should acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills necessary for the nursing career. The main objective of this study is to explore time management in nursing students considering their obstacles and specific university education.

  Material & Methods: Grounded theory was used as method. A total of 21 undergraduate nursing students were recruited by purposeful and theoretical sampling. Data was generated using semi-structured interviews and analyzed by constant comparison method of Corbin & Strauss (2008).

  Results: in this study, “marginalization of the educational tasks” was one of the three behavioral patterns used by the nursing students. The properties of this pattern were: unwanted entry to the nursing major, stress and dissatisfaction with time pass, non-admission of the field, endeavor for stress reduction and getting satisfaction, and marginalization of educational tasks. According to this pattern, to cope their perceived stress, the students spent the main part of their time on non-academic tasks.

  Conclusion: The finding of this study highlights the need for planning to increase nursing students’ motivation to spend more time for academic tasks.
