Abstract
Good quality students’ learning outcomes are dependent on good teaching materials. Good teaching materials are those developed based on an appropriate needs analysis. In this era of globalization, nurses must be skillful not only in nursing, but also in communicating in English with non-Indonesian patients. Therefore, one of the goals of nursing education is the mastery of spoken English. Related to this issue, the research reported in this paper aims to develop the appropriate speaking materials for the second semester students of nursing program based on their needs. This is a research and development study conducted at a nursing school in Yogyakarta. The development of the materials went through seven steps: conducting needs analysis, designing the course grid, developing the first draft of the textbook, getting the expert judgment, revising the product, implementing the product, and evaluating the product. The data were obtained from questionnaires and interview. The questionnaires were analyzed using quantitative data analysis, while the interview data were analyzed using qualitative data analysis. The research findings reveal the real needs of nursing students, the teacher’s viewpoints on the practice of instructions, and the descriptions of English for nurses used in their field of work.
