The changes in social, economic and health problems require a change in strategies in order to obtain graduates with appropriate competencies. Outcome-based education is a teaching method that focuses on the outcomes of graduated nurses based on curriculum objectives. In addition, it is responsive to stakeholders and social needs. This article’s objective is to develop a Bachelor of Nursing Science outcome-based education program at the Faculty of Nursing, Chiang Rai College. Outcome-based education involves a key step: identification of graduates' characteristics or qualifications, which are informed by analysis of stakeholder preferences and needs, as well as the vision, mission, and philosophy of the College and Faculty of Nursing, which define course objectives, learning outcomes, and expected learning outcomes. Another important step considers the management of teaching and learning activities that will enable students to achieve the desired outcomes in addition to the measurement of achievement in which each process must have a corresponding connection in order to obtain graduates with competencies that meet the requirements of the institution.
