Methods: This was a qualitative study with interpretive approach. There were nine informants selected using purposive sampling, which consisted of nurse educators and clinical instructors. Data collection was conducted in December 2016 - February 2017 using focus group discussions and in-depth interviews. Data were analyzed using Colaizzi process.

Result: There were four themes emerged from data, namely 1) Competency of IMCI for Diploma Nursing Students, 2) Deepening of IMCI Material, 3) Learning methods of IMCI in the class and clinic should be active and structured, 4) Student confidence in the application of IMCI in clinical setting.
