          This research aimed 1) to develop the instructional model with simulated situation to enhance the performance in primary medical care of the nursing students, and 2) to compare the nursing students’ performance. The samples of this study were 50 of the forth year nursing students at Boromrajonani College of Nursing Uttaradit in the academic year 2016, which were divided two groups: the controlled and experimental ones. The students in both groups had similar grade point average.  The methodology had 4 stages; 1) Studying the conceptual of  the instructional model 2) Constructing the instructional model with simulated situations, 3) Experimenting and studying results of the instructional model implementation, and 4) Improving the instructional model. Data analysis by using descriptive statistic and t-test  

The results show that: 1. The instructional model with simulated situation to enhance the performance primary medical care of the nursing students consisted of key components which were the direction of principles, objectives, learning process and evaluation.  2.  After using the instructional model, the experimental group had higher average scores of performance of primary medical care than the controlled group with the statistic significance at .05.  3.  After using instructional model, the experimental group had higher scores in their performance for primary medical care than before using the instructional model with the statistic significance at .05.
