The instruments consisted of lesson plan based on Constructivist learning process on the topic of nursing management for children with gastrointestinal disorders and learning achievement test. The reliability was 0.88, as well as satisfaction evaluation form, with its reliability was 0.94. Data were analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and Repeated Measure Analysis of Variance with Bonferroni’s test. The findings of the study revealed that the study sample’s mean post-test scores of learning achievement test immediately after the experiment and at two-week follow up were statistically significantly higher than the mean pre-test score (p <.01). The overall scores of satisfaction in Constructivist learning process were at the highest level. The findings of this research provide nursing educators with a practical model that can be used to improve nursing curricula students’ knowledge building processes based on Constructivist Learning Approach to develop the 21st century learning skills for student students.
