Method: Master"s theses in the field of nursing education were screened in YÖK database by giving/searching for the keywords "sexual health" and "reproductive health". All theses included in the system were included in the study at any specific given time interval. As a result of the screening, a total of 15 thesis studies were reached.

Findings: It was determined that the majority of the studies were a master thesis studies (n = 14 studies) and the number increased after 2012 (12 studies), 46.6% of the studies were conducted with information???. All of the studies are quantitative and the majority (80%) are descriptive. More than half of the studies (53.4%) had the sample calculation and the sample number was calculated by the "sample size formula known by the number of individuals at the stage". Nearly half of the sample was composed of women (46.6%) and students (33.3%). When the region of study was examined, it was seen that most of them were conducted in Central Anatolia region (46.6% n = 7 study) and Marmara region (33.3% n = 5 study).

Results: It seems that more qualitative or empirical studies should be conducted, It is suggested that the sample of the following studies should be made of individuals who are risky individuals (multifaceted individuals, disadvantaged groups, migrants, disabled individuals, low socioeconomic and educational levels, living in rural areas and those who do not fall within the scope of the metropolitan area). In the future, it is suggested that women"s reproductive health and female sexual health, which are important issues in terms of male individuals, should be examined and questioned by nurses.
