Background: Using physical assessment (PA) skills on nursing practice is part of an on-going nursing role development process. Few studies have been done on how PA skills were implemented by nursing students in a clinical setting. Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate how nursing students applied PA skills during their practicing periods and identified the barriers and related factors that which may affected students in implementing PA skills in a clinical setting. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional design was conducted. Two-hundred and eighty-nine subjects were recruited from four medical teaching hospitals by convenience sampling in Taiwan. Three measurements were adopted: Implementing frequency scale (58items, 4-point Likert scale), Satisfy scale (4-point Likert scale), and Implementing barrier questionnaire.  Results: The results indicated that 90% of students did not satisfy with their performance on implementing PA skills during practicing periods (Mean=2.4) and the average frequency of implementing PA techniques was low (99.6/232). The least applied PA skills were those implemented on reproductive system. To the 289 samples, lack of practice (69.3%) and lack of confidence (61.9%) were the top two barriers. The most significant correlated factors were the length of practical training period and the frequency of PA skills applied by clinical instructors and clinical staff. Conclusions: The result of this study provides useful information for designing a clinical training program that can enhance the ability of nursing students practicing PA techniques.
