Nursing ethics is the behavioral norm of nursing practices. Whether nurses can practice appropriately hinges upon whether the methods of nursing ethics education are appropriate. The aims of this study were the application of problem based learning in curriculum design and the development of performance measurement tools in nursing ethics instruction. The study included two stages. The first stage was the curriculum design for problem-based nursing ethics learning. The second stage was the design of tools for the measurement of students’ performance. The nursing ethics curriculum validated by experts includes curriculum objectives, learning goals, instruction outlines, case of discussion, instruction methods and performance assessment, etc. The performance measurement tools were ascertained via expert validity and the inclusion criteria were set at a CVI larger than .86. In addition, the test and retest reliability of the biomedical ethical discrimination reached .95. The final content of the biomedical ethical discrimination scale included 9 situations, 41 items, and 2 situation examinations. It is hoped that the results can provide references for nursing ethics instruction in the schools and make this instruction more effective. And the conducts of future nurses will all comply with the norms of professional nursing ethics.
