a b s t r a c t Objective: To compile nursing undergraduates' opinions and suggestions for biochemistry textbook to improve the readability and applicability of a textbook of biochemistry. Methods: This investigation involved 279 nursing undergraduates through delivery of a self-made questionnaire, which was to be used to analyze and study the students' suggestions and opinions on the content of the biochemistry textbook. Results: The investigation revealed that the textbook's difficulty was associated negatively with stu-dents' interest (P < 0.05), and the textbook's importance was associated positively with students' interest (P < 0.05). Students suggested that the textbook should be closely related to nursing. The contents, difficulty, structure and charts of the textbook should be adjusted properly. Conclusions: The content of the nursing version of the biochemistry textbook should be driven by the needs of the nursing major and should focus on simplifying the textbook's content, and making it practical. This will make the textbook vivid and readable, enhancing the interest of students to accept and benefit from the textbook.
