    Along with the establishment of Asean Economic Community in 2015, opportunities to work abroad as health workers especially as nurses are wide-open in some countries. But, the recent condition shows that most Indonesian nursing graduates students lack in knowledge and competency of English as the key to enter international world. That problem is related to the quality of nursing education including the curriculum and all aspects needed (subject, syllabus & materials). Due to those problems, this study was conducted with the aims to analyze to what extent the ESP syllabuses designed for Nursing Department meet the communicative syllabus criteria & communicative competence criteria. The study was carried out at one health education institution in Madiun. The study was designed as qualitative content analysis study. Document analysis & personal interview were the data collection techniques. Checklist item was constructed to analyze the syllabuses. ESP syllabuses for Nursing Department consist of 4 syllabuses; Bahasa Inggris syllabus, Nursing English 1, 2 & 3. The analysis result showed that the syllabuses have sufficiently fulfilled the criteria of communicative syllabus in terms of; syllabus type, language content dimensions, process dimensions (organization, teacher’s and learner’s role, and activities & task) and product dimensions. However, there were also found insufficient aspect in terms of organization and teacher’s role. The syllabuses had fulfilled communicative competence criteria including five competences; discourse competence, linguistic competence, actional competence, socio cultural competence, and strategic competence. Nevertheless, strategic competence was less provided in the syllabus. Hopefully, the result of this study can provide an insight in designing a syllabus. Keywords: communicative competence, communicative syllabus, content analysis, ESP, syllabus analysis
