Abstract : Prosocial behavior is the behavior of helping and helping others voluntarily which is very much needed during the Covid-19 pandemic, but it is not easy to help in a pandemic situation like today considering the government's rules to reduce physical contact with other people. One side wants to help but on the other hand, there is also a sense of anxiety to help. One of the groups that have low prosocial behavior is college students, because students have high ego-centrism they find it difficult to help others. This study aims to determine the description of prosocial behavior in nursing students during the Covid-19 pandemic. This study uses a quantitative descriptive method. The sampling technique used is stratified random sampling with the number of respondents in this study as many as 271 nursing students at Universitas Padjadjaran. The instrument used is the Prosocial Tendencies Measure with a validity value ranging from 0.318 to 0.694 and a reliability value of 0.91. Analysis of the data used in univariate analysis. The results of this study indicate that most of the prosocial behavior of nursing students was moderate (59.0%), which means that the prosocial behavior of nursing students is still lacking or not optimal and needs to be improved. This study concludes that the prosocial behavior of nursing students during the Covid-19 pandemic is still not optimal. It is important to improve or at least maintain their prosocial behavior by paying attention and providing direction, counseling guidance to students to practice prosocial behavior, and applying more learning by using a role-play approach.
