The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of flipped learning-based health assessment education on academic achievement of nursing students. The subjects of the study included nursing students attending second year at university. For 10 weeks, the experimental group was exposed to flipped learning-based classes, and the control group was provided with traditional lectures and team learning-based classes. In the intermediate evaluation, the knowledge and performance scores of the experimental group and the control group were statistically significant, and in the final evaluation, the knowledge and performance scores of the experimental group and the control group were statistically significant. The integrated knowledge score, evaluated three times after the end of the training, was higher in the experimental group than in the control group. These results suggest that flipped learning is an effective teaching and learning method for improving knowledge and performance of nursing students. Therefore, the application of flipped learning in various nursing education areas should be studied.
