Objective: In recent years, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and CVD-related deaths have been increasing in the young population in Turkey. Nursing students should be informed about CVD and should reduce their own risk of this disease. This study was conducted to determine the impact of the knowledge of CVD risk factors among nursing students on the results of risk assessments.
