I bought six packets of nasturtiums and would they effectively cover a large hill with a semi-steep slope in full sun?

Perhaps. They like full sun but also a little protection/shade from hot afternoon sun and don't tend to thrive in blazing hot sun.

There are two types of nasturtiums too--some are trailing/sprawling which is probably more what you want and the other type is mound forming. Not sure about full sun location during southern summers though.

Nasturtiums plants grow very full, with spots of brightly colored blossoms poking out of masses of foliage.
