Abstract: The objectives of this study were to develop and implement an instructional model based on design thinking and reflective practice approaches that creates and enhances the capacity of nursing innovation in nursing students. This research design involved two phases of research and development, with 16 fourth-year nursing students selected by purposive sampling. The data collected were analysed with scoring rubrics, descriptive statistics and content analysis. The instructional model called the 'DGR model' employed the following five steps: 1) preparation and inspiration; 2) data discovery and problem identification; 3) information retrieval and verification solutions; 4) development and inspection of innovation prototypes; 5) dissemination and reflection on learning. The model for nursing innovation capacity of nursing students, which has been promoted to an average score of the capacity to create nursing innovation at a good level, produced more than the specific criteria with a statistically significant level of 0.05.
