This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of hypermedia-based training on students' learning of the application of nasogastric tube feeding. This study was conducted as a randomized controlled study with single blind. The sample of the study consisted of 60 students enrolled in the course of Basic Principles and Practices in Nursing in Nevsehir Haci Bektas Veli University. Students' academic achievement levels and genders were considered in order to provide randomization in the assignment of students to experimental and control groups. The data of the study were collected using the "Nasogastric Tube Nutrition Practice Knowledge Test", "Nasogastric Tube Attachment Skill Checklist". The number, percentage, arithmetic mean and standard deviation were used in the evaluation of the data. The data obtained from the study were evaluated in SPSS. The mean scores of the students in the experimental group for the Nasogastric Tube Nutrition Practice Knowledge Test and Nasogastric Tube Attachment Skill Checklist were significantly higher than the control group (p < .05). It was found that the hypermedia method had a positive effect on knowledge, skill, self-assessment and motivation of nasogastric tube feeding in nursing education. For this reason, it is suggested to extend the use of the hypermedia method as a support to in-class teaching.
