The research aims at confirming factors, investigating sub-factors of the therapeutic relationships of nursing students, and developing the therapeutic relationship assessment tool. The samples were 400 nursing students in the Northeastern region of Thailand. The LISREL8.72 model was employed for data analysis. The research findings showed that the therapeutic relationship assessment tool consisted of five key factors with 16 sub-factors, and the 57-item-assessment tool with a 0.95 reliability index was assessed by the experts and confirmed by the empirical data. Therefore, the therapeutic relationship assessment tool is practical and appropriate for nursing students.
