Background and Objectives: Nowadays, adjustment to college in nursing and midwifery students requires more attention due to exposure to psychological and environmental stressors. The aim of the present study was to determine the role of emotional maturity, ego-resiliency, and spiritual intelligence in the prediction of adjustment to college with control of cognitive flexibility in nursing and midwifery students.
 
Methods: In a correlational design, using stage sampling method, 273 students were selected from nursing and midwifery students of Ahvaz Jundishapur University, according to the Krejcie and Morgan table, in the academic year of 2017-2018. Information were collected using Emotional Maturity Scale, Ego-Resiliency Scale, Spiritual Intelligence Inventory, Adjustment to College Scale, and Cognitive Flexibility Inventory. Analysis of the data was performed using Pearson correlation coefficient and hierarchical regression analysis.
 
Results: In this study, based on the results of Pearson correlation coefficient, there was significant positive correlations between all the predictive variables and the criterion variable. Moreover, there was a positive and significant correlation between cognitive flexibility and criterion variable. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that emotional maturity, ego-resiliency, and spiritual intelligence with control of cognitive flexibility could explain and predict 26% of variance of adjustment to college scores. Furthermore, in the analysis of hierarchical regression, emotional maturity and spiritual intelligence had a significant role in the prediction of adjustment to university.
 
Conclusions: Considering the important role of emotional maturity, spiritual intelligence (beyond cognitive flexibility) is essential in the prediction of adaptation of nursing and midwifery students to university, targeting these variables in order to increase students’ compatibility and can improve the performance of students in personal-social areas, psychological well-being, and community health promotion.
