Aim: The aim of this scoping review was to examine the results of studies on innovative approaches to clinical nursing education in Turkey.

Method: The research was based on the comprehensive research protocol proposed by Arksey and O’Malley. PubMed, Ovid, Ebsco, Elsevier, Google Scholar, Ulakbim, Turk Medline, and Dergi Park databases were screened.

Results: Fifty-one research articles meeting the inclusion criteria were included in the study. Studies in Turkey focus on the innovative approaches of simulation (25), distance learning (8), clinical guidance (7), concept map (4), peer coaching (4), and reflective thinking (3).

Conclusion: It has been determined that innovative approaches in clinical nursing education improve psychomotor skills, increase communication skills as well as reduce anxiety, and students’ opinions about related methods are positive. In addition to the positive results of the studies, it was found that experimental designs with high evidence value were insufficient.
