The nursing profession must be pursued through higher education. Practice vehicles, such as hospitals require students to pass a skills test before they can practice. The Nursing Study Program, FIKES UMM, has implemented a matriculation program for students who will join the Nursing Profession. This activity has been carried out for a long time and has undergone several method changes to produce more effective outputs. However, there has never been an evaluation of how successful and valuable this program is for students. This type of research is a descriptive study because the researcher only observed Student' Perceptions Skills Training Programs in Preparing to Participate in Nursing Professional Education. The population in this study were all students of professional practice Nurses wave 20, a total of 50 respondents were taken by total sampling technique. The Dundee Ready Education Environment Measure (DREEM) questionnaire is appropriate for measuring the learning environment.
