This study aimed to identify the correlation between adversity quotient (AQ) and career adaptability of internship nursing students. This study was descriptive correlational. Samples were recruited using a total sampling tecnique (n=142). Data were collected using a questionnaire consisting of a demographic survey, an Adversity Response Profile (ARP) Quick TakeTM and a Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Rank Spearman correlation test. The result of this study indicated that no students were in quitter category, only 0,7% of them were in quitter to camper transition, 76,8% of them were campers, 21,8% of the students were in camper to climber transition, 0,7% of all respondents were climbers. No students had a very low career adaptability, only 1,4% of them had a low career adaptability, while the proportions of students with a high and very high career adaptability were 75,4% and 23,2 % respectively. No significant correlation was found between AQ and career adaptability (p value >0,05; Spearman’s ρ +0,122). It can be concluded that most of internship nursing students at Faculty of Nursing Universitas Padjadjaran were campers and had a high level of career adaptability. There was also no significant correlation between AQ and career adaptability.

Instrumen yang digunakan pada penelitian ini yaitu Adversity Response Profile (ARP) Quick TakeTM dan Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS). Teknik analisis data yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini menggunakan skoring ARP QuickTakeTM, skoring CAAS, serta uji korelasi Rank Spearman. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa tidak seorangpun responden yang berada pada kategori quitter, sebanyak 0,7% dari responden berada pada kategori transisi quitter ke camper, pada kategori camper sebanyak 76,8%, pada kategori transisi camper ke climber sebanyak 21,8%, dan pada kategori climber sebanyak 0,7%. Tidak ada mahasiswa dengan adaptabilitas karier sangat rendah, hanya 1,4% mahasiswa dengan adaptabilitas karier rendah, sedangkan mahasiswa dengan adaptabilitas karier tinggi dan sangat tinggi masing-masing proporsinya sebanyak 75,4% dan 23,2%.
