Objectives: This research aimed to examine factors predicting learning outcomes among nursing students through online Learning during COVID-19 Pandemic. Methods: The 212 samples were randomly recruited from the 3rd and 4th years nursing students, Bachelor of Nursing Science program, Faculty of Nursing Burapha University. Self-reported questionnaires were used for data collection including 1) personal data record form, 2) online learning behavior questionnaire, 3) perceived online teaching competency questionnaire, 4) online learning support questionnaire, and 5) learning outcomes questionnaire. The content validity of second to fifth section confirmed by three experts: CVI, yielding values of .90, .83, .95 and .93 respectively. The reliability of the questionnaires was tested using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, yielding values of .86 .95 .83 and .96 respectively. The data was collected by using online questionnaires. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and stepwise multiple regression. Results: The results showed that nursing students’ average score of learning outcomes was 4.09 (SD = .46). Perceived online teaching competency and online learning behavior could explain 23% of the variance in learning outcomes among nursing students (R2 = .23, p < .01). Conclusion: These findings suggest that faculty of nursing should promote online teaching competencies for instructors and support students’ appropriate online learning behaviors, which would maximize nursing students’ learning outcomes.
