             Learning management by case-based approach helps learners apply knowledge in nursing process. The objectives of this quasi-experimental research (pre-test and post-test) were to study knowledge and satisfaction on case-based learning of the learners by the case-based approach. The population consisted of 146 nursing students who studied nursing Care of Pregnant Women with Pre-eclampsia. Research tools consisted of lesson plans, case study, examination, questionnaire regarding the opinions of learners and satisfaction on learning management. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and t-test.

              Learners’ knowledge after learning was higher than the pre- test at .01 level of the statistically significant difference (df=145, t = -67.60). Opinions of the learners on the overall systematical thinking ability was at the high level (gif.latex?\bar{x} = 3.92, S.D=.56) and satisfaction of learners was at the high level ( gif.latex?\bar{x}= 4.12, S.D=.56). The results of this study showed that the learning management by the case-based approach made the learners achieve a better learning. Therefore, the researchers suggest that there should be an application of this model for teaching and learning management in the nursing field to develop learners’ thinking process continuously.
