• This study specifically focused on the academic words used in nursing field.
• The NAWL is genre-specific and relevant to nursing students' needs.
• This 676-word list represents a relatively useful target for nursing students.
• The NAWL gives excellent coverage in the nursing academic research articles.
This corpus-based lexical study aims to explore the most frequently-used nursing academic vocabulary across different sub-disciplines in the nursing field. A 1,006,934-word corpus called the Nursing Research Articles Corpus (hereafter NRAC), which contains 252 English nursing research articles from online resources, was established for this study. A Nursing Academic Word List containing the most frequently-used nursing words in nursing research articles, was developed from the corpus. A frequency and range-based nursing academic word list including 676 word families, which accounts for approximately 13.64% of the coverage in the NRAC under study, was produced to provide a useful academic word pool for non-native English learners who need to read and publish nursing articles in English. The findings suggest that it is necessary to generate field-specific academic word lists for EFL nursing students to strengthen their academic reading and writing proficiency. Pedagogical implications are made for English for Nursing Purposes instructors, English for Academic Purposes researchers, material designers and nursing graduate students.
