Methods: This study was conducted experimentally in a model with a pretest to posttest control group. Findings: In the measurements made after training, it was observed that mean scores of Sexuality Assessment Information Test, Sexual Attitude and Beliefs Scale, and Sexuality Assessment Skills Check List in the experimental group were significantly higher than mean scores of students in the control group (p <.05). Conclusion: It was determined that sexuality assessment skills training has a positive effect on the knowledge, attitude, and behavior of nursing students. Practice Implications: Sexuality assessment skills training can provide nurses with a guide for discussing the topic of sexual health with their patients.
