Objective: The purpose of the present study is to review the existing literatures to understand the competency of nursing students to prevent the pressure injury (PI). Methods: Arksey and O'Malley's scoping review framework have been applied to understand the competency of nursing students on pressure injury prevention (PIP). A variety of databases have been searched in this study, including PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, CNKI, Wanfang databases. Results: A total of 17 articles were selected and three main themes were summarized: “Knowledge and Attitude”, “Preparation” and “Educational situation and needs”. Conclusion: Although the attitudes towards pressure injuries were positive, the knowledge of nursing students on preventing PI was insufficient and their consciousness was weak. The controversy of the readiness of nursing students to prevent pressure injuries has existed for a long time. Nursing students were severely lacking in pressure sore education courses and needed better education methods and more clinical practice opportuni-ties.
