One of the challenges that higher education institutions face is to avoid academic failure and student desertion, so they must be motivated and develop various strategies that allow optimal learning. Achieving learning at university depends on many factors, including study habits, being these methods and strategies that a student usually uses to deal with a number of learning content. Study habits include a variety of activities such as time management, setting academic goals, choosing an appropriate study environment, using appropriate learning strategies, among others. Previous studies in the university population show that adequate study habits are related to evaluations of study habits with categories of positive, positive and very positive trends, and inadequate study habits are linked to categories with negative, negative and very negative trends. Positive study habits have a good impact on the academic performance of students in the area of health sciences. It is important that the university as part of its pedagogical model and its comprehensive training proposal, care about the characteristics of its students, in order to guarantee meaningful learning, therefore, the objective of this study is to determine study habits in students of a nursing program. The focus of the study is quantitative, being its descriptive and cross-sectional methodological design. There was a population of 534 students from a nursing program at a private university located in Lima. The data collection instrument used is the Study Habits Inventory - CASM 85, made up of 53 items, grouped into five areas or dimensions, which measures study habits, having as a result a final categories such as very positive, positive, tendency to positive, tendency to negative, negative and very negative. The findings of this study show that the predominant level of study habits was that of positive trend (33.9%), followed by positive (25.1%), negative trend (15.4%), very positive (14, 2%), very negative (6.9%) and negative (4.5%). Regarding the areas or dimensions, the positive trend prevailed in the form of study and in the resolution of tasks (52.2% and 27.5% respectively), in the preparation of exams the positive (29.2%), in the way of listening to the class the negative trend (22.5%) and in the accompaniment to the study the very positive (31.8%). These results imply that the academic and tutoring areas must continue to develop strategies that improve study habits in students, emphasizing the areas of listening to the class, solving tasks and accompanying the study.
