People faced numerous challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and their lives were changed, particularly those of the students. Mental health is a state of well-being in which individuals can cope with the normal adversities in life (WHO, 2004). Good mental health is crucial    for students as it could lead to satisfactory academic performance. This study aimed to assess the mental health status of the University of Bohol College of Nursing Students. It delved into the demographic profile and the mental health of the respondents in terms of psychological, physical, and emotional aspects; and looked into the correlation/association between the respondents’ profile and mental health status.  It utilized the quantitative, descriptive-correlational research design aided with a modified questionnaire adapted from an article entitled “Here to Help, Body Image, Self-Esteem, and Mental Health” by the Canadian Mental Health Association. Two hundred randomly selected nursing students from the University of Bohol who were enrolled in the 2nd Semester, SY 2021- 2021 were included in the study. Results revealed that respondents have good mental health in terms of psychological, physical, and emotional aspects. When data were subjected to Spearman’s rank test of correlation and chi-square test of association, results revealed that age is significantly correlated to mental health and that the gender and year level has no significant association to mental health.
