ABSTRACT This study was conducted to determine the effects of having absentee parents of BSN level 1 students to their social health. This study aimed to investigate the students who have absentee parent/s and if this situation really affects their social health. The researchers used random sampling to determine the total number of the respondents. All in all, there are twenty respondents. It consists of fourteen girls and six boys. This is study was conducted from November 2011 to February 2012. The researchers used surveys as their instruments during the investigation. Through the data given by the respondents through the questionnaire, the researchers were able to form conclusions and recommendations for the benefit of their respondents. Based on the findings, the researchers found out that there are no direct effects or minimal effects in the results of the social interaction of those who have absentee parents. Respondents who have absentee parent/s trust their classmates in sharing their secret, asking for advices for their problems, and participating in the group activities in the school. In other words, even if the student has an absentee parent, he/she can still be comfortable with the company of her classmates, schoolmates, professors, parents and relatives. In completion of this research, the researchers recommend that the students still needs to have parental love and care to guide him/her on how they can interact with other people because, the most basic social participation starts within the family.
