This study was conducted on 280 nursing students between March 3th 2015 and March 10th. 2015. The data was analyzed by using SPSS/WIN 18.0 program. Moral sensitivity significantly differed depending on one's experience in biomedical ethic education. Significant positive correlations were witnessed between critical thinking disposition and professional self-concept as well as between critical thinking disposition and moral sensitivity. Considering the results, the ways to develop critical thinking disposition and to ameliorate the current clinical training system are needed to firmly establish professional self-concept. Finally, I Suggest a study to develop and validate training program for the improvement of nursing students' moral sensitivity.
