The content validity indexes of them were .83, .70, and .76 respectively. The Cronbach's Alpha Coefficients of the self-awareness questionnaires, and the learning happiness questionnaires were .95 and .83, respectively. Data were collected between 3 May 2021-13 June 2021 and analyzed by using an independent t-test and paired t-test.

The results showed that, after the experiment, the average score of learning happiness of the experimental group was significantly increased at the level of .05 and the average scores of self-awareness and learning happiness of the experimental group and the control group was no statistically significant difference.

The results of this study indicated that the effects of applying contemplative education via online education on enhancing self-awareness and learning happiness in nursing students were not different from conventional online education.
