Rendering Indonesian nursing students master English language has become a big dream of nursing schools in Indonesia. The clear proof of it is the presence of English subjects across the curricula of the major programs. Otherwise, English writing still becomes the first problematic skills of all due to the belief that it is the last skill to teach after listening, speaking, and reading. This experimental study aimed at cracking the strategies to enhance the nursing students’ writing performance. The first step taken on is embedding the real context of nursing into the writing. Therefore, nursing care is brought out onto the writing process for both the topic idea and the writing structure, as nursing care is reported into phases: assessment, diagnosing, nursing planning, implementation, and evaluation. This design employed quasi-experimental research with pre- and post-test design. The sample of the study was 56 fourth-semester students of Nursing Science Study Program of Musi Charitas Catholic University. They were divided into two groups: experimental and control. For data collection, the test was used to measure the students’ writing improvement. For the result, the paired-sample t-test in the experimental group found out that the students showed a significant difference on the writing skill after the treatment. It was derived from the data showing the significant level P < 0.05. Comparing the post-test scores between the groups, the independent t-Test determined the significant level P < 0.05. Hence, it was concluded that there was a significant difference in writing between the groups.
