The reliability of this study is Cronbach's α = 0.82. We analyzed the data using SPSS/WIN 18.0 statistical program and used descriptive statistics, T-test, and ANOVA. The results of the study are as follows. The overall average for biomedical ethics among health care department students is 140.18 (SD = 11.50) and that among non-health-care department students is 98.77 (SD = 12.99). This shows that nursing department students give higher statistical significance level against non-health-care department students but this result considerably includes discord factor which can change their values depending on situations and confusion in values. Thus, it is necessary to consider arbitration plan to promote biomedical ethics toward health care department students.
