Results: 81.6% of the students agreed with the course assessment method, and 97.9% believed studying “Nursing Research” would be helpful for future scientific research applications. Conclusion: Diversified assessment methods can help improve undergraduate nursing students’ scientific research skills and comprehensive quality.
