Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analyze the trends in Korea of nursing research using animals. Methods: 45 articles were reviewed with descriptive statistics from 2000 to 2015. Results: Nearly 50% of the studies were supported by research funds. Most of the animal species in the studies were rats (81.1%) and mice (15.6%). The major animal models for human disease were cerebrovascular diseases (24.4%), skin problems (17.8%) and nerve injuries (15.5%). Immunohistochemistry (24.3%) was mainly used as an experimental technique. The main intervention and treatments used in the studies were chemical treatments, exercise and surgery. Conclusion: In this review, relevant results were described to identify the trends of nursing research using animal experimentation in Korea. Expansion of various nursing research using animal models can be required for gaining knowledge applicable to the same conditions in humans.
