The purpose of the study is to investigate the effect of various teaching methods combined with flipped classroom and nurse assistant on nursing education. In this study, the control group received teaching through traditional teaching methods, while the experimental group adopted the diversified teaching methods with flipped classroom and nurse assistant. The term of study is one semester. At the end of the semester, two groups of students took OSCE examinations and conducted a survey of course satisfaction. In the OSCE examination, all the scores in the experimental group was significantly higher than those in the control group. (p<0.001) In the course satisfaction survey, all the evaluations of the experimental group were significantly higher than those of the control group. (p<0.001) Thus, the diversified teaching methods combined with flipped classroom and nurse assistant can help students put knowledge into practice and consolidate theoretical knowledge and improve practical ability.
