The purpose of this study was to explore educational needs of communication, focusing on how nursing students evaluate their current communication skills and what students think is most crucial in communication competency. METHODS: This cross-sectional descriptive study collected data from 276 nursing students at multiple universities from September to November 2016. Main analyses included descriptive statistics, independent t-tests, and one-way ANOVA with SPSS/WIN and R 3.2.3, as well as importance-performance analysis by Martilla and James. RESULTS: There was a difference in the perceived importance of communication depending on field experience. Students who reported excellent communication skills compared to their peers had higher perceived communication importance than those who reported similar or inferior skills. The perceived need for dominant communication of goal setting skills was the highest. After confirming the list of priorities for Borich's needs assessment, the education need for goal setting skills was the highest with 1.79. CONCLUSION: Our study findings emphasize that the highest need for education of nursing students was the dominant communication of goal setting skills. This is needed to develop an education program that can strengthen goal setting communication for nursing students with a special focus on dominant communication.
