We study the isoscalar giant monopole resonance for drip-lines and super heavy nuclei in the framework of relativistic mean field theory with a scaling approach. The well known extended Thomas-Fermi approximation in the nonlinear σ-ω model is used to estimate the giant monopole excitation energy for some selected light spherical nuclei starting from the region of proton to neutron drip-lines. The application is extended to the super heavy region for Z=114 and 120, which are predicted by several models as the next proton magic numbers beyond Z=82. We compared the excitation energy obtained by four successful force parameters NL1, NL3, NL3*, and FSUGold. The monopole energy decreases toward the proton and neutron drip-lines in an isotopic chain for lighter mass nuclei, in contrast to a monotonic decrease for super heavy isotopes. The maximum and minimum monopole excitation energies are obtained for nuclei with minimum and maximum isospin in an isotopic chain, respectively.
