Concept mapping is an important teaching and learning method that can help learners accurately acquire the information they need. A concept map connects how people learn with meaningful learning issues. In nursing, concept maps can be used as a method for combining practice and theory, case management, academic writing, and study skills of nursing students. It has been identified that the use of the concept maps in nursing education improves a student's sense of accomplishment, self-confidence, and the ability of developing critical thinking skills. In addition, this method allows students to more easily identify the subjects that they do not know and understand and has a positive effect on students' academic success. In nursing education, the use of concept maps is very beneficial, and more information to educators in this field is recommended. In this review, general information about concept maps, the structure and formation of concepts maps, and the importance of using concept maps in nursing education is mentioned.
