In recent years, along with the development of mobile technology, vocational nursing education has improved greatly. In light of this emerging mobile technology, it brings the clinical practice of vocational nursing education closer to authentic learning than ever. In fact, some studies revealed that learners' learn states and learning outcomes would be directly or indirectly influenced with mobile technology. Therefore, this study proposed an authentic learning model for vocational nursing education, validated by home-visiting activities with the assistance of the mobile technology for a nursing practice course of 60 nursing students at a vocational nursing school in Taiwan. The research was based on the framework of the paradigm of authentic learning to derive authentic learning evaluation scales. Then, the scales were employed to evaluate usability and satisfaction of the students engaging in home-visiting activities by using the mobile technology. Through the empirical experiment, our findings show that the nursing students' authenticity experience and professional skill development can be enhanced through the assessment of the proposed authentical evaluation scales.
