This study was done to investigate the current conditions with communication-related education in the nursing undergraduate curriculum, and to develop effective strategies for communication education. Methods: We collected 48 syllabi of communication-related courses from the nursing college or nursing department of a university and analyzed the syllabi using the content analysis method. Results: First, in the knowledge domain, 'Theories of communication', 'Characteristics of human relationship, understanding the importance, and building philosophical foundations' were covered. Second, the skill domain covered 'Application of communication for nursing care' as a main concept. Third, 'Building human relationships for nursing care' was mainly covered in the attitude domain. On the other hand, topics and content were different depending on instructors. Although the courses covered the same educational content, they were categorized under different names and concepts. Conclusion: These findings have implications for how to standardize a communication course in the nursing curriculum.
Key Words: Communication, Nursing curriculum, Nursing education
