Purpose: The objective of this study was to identify factors influencing disordered eating behaviors in female college students based on the theory of triadic influence. Design and Method: The participants in this study were 307 college females in Korea. Data were analyzed using t-tests, correlation coefficients, and multiple regression analyses. Findings: Multiple regression analysis revealed that objectified body consciousness, social physique anxiety, and sociocultural attitudes toward appearance influenced disordered eating behavior (R2 = 0.33, F = 51.32, P < 0.001). Practice Implications: This study suggests the development of a nursing program for college females that considers the factors influencing personal, social, and cultural streams will be effective.
