Methods: Cognizant of the aims of the study, a conjoint analysis survey was purposively fielded to 213 junior and senior nursing students enrolled in a university-based college of nursing. Results: Results of the conjoint analysis identified teaching strategy (48.859%) particularly integrated strategy (1.571) and instructional medium (14.022%) specifically, multimedia (.254) as the most and least valued attribute and level. Consequently, the second and third most valued attribute was formative assessment (19.504%) and summative assessment (17.615%) wherein, traditional combined with alternative forms of assessment was the most preferred in both formative (.316) and summative (.255) assessments.
