Abstract: The purpose of this study was to find out factors that are the experiences of nursing students on medication practice and to enhance motivation and practice. We confirmed the contents of experience of nursing students' practice and confirmed the significance of giving medication nursing practice. The participants of the study were five nursing students. The contents of the interviews were analyzed by using Nvivo11. The results of this study categorized experience about medication practice on nursing students. Among such factors were their efforts for self-directed practice, requirements for that and barriers to self-directed practice, and advice for applying gamification. It is identified as a hindrance that concerns about whether the model lacking realism is the problem and whether the protocol is implemented in the right way. The students said that it was most effective to take a video of a practical training on a smart-phone and see it from time to time for a successful self-study. The results of this study allow for a comprehensive understanding of nursing students in a self-directed practice environment for learning medication. Based on the results of this study, it is expected that it will be used as basic data for the development of an effective self- directed training program for medication practices in the future.
