The inability to conduct face-to-face classes during the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for distance education and active learning methods in nursing education. In programs that provide knowledge and skill-based education such as nursing education, active learning methods should be used to create learning environments where the student is in an active position and the trainer is a guide. The Flipped Classroom Model is one of the student-centered teaching methods that includes the application of active learning strategies. The basic logic of this model; It is the allocation of the lesson time in the classroom to the learning process in which the student is more active. Students who come to the lesson by studying the lesson materials before the lesson are provided to construct the knowledge with the activities they are active in the lesson. In the lessons conducted with this model, students learn concepts at their own learning pace. The fact that the course can be studied at any time and place highlights the flexible teaching method feature of the model. In addition, this model is more effective in developing students’ spirit of cooperation, practice and communication skills, in-terest in the lesson, and ability to think and analyze compared to the traditional classroom. In this review, the content, learning process, advantages and disadvantages of the Flipped Classroom Model, which can be used as an alternative method for continuing nursing education with distance education, are given and literature information about its use in nursing education is presented.
