Introduction: Training has an integral role in the execution of cardiopulmonary ‎resuscitation principles. Not only does it assure nurses in the acquisition of ‎cardiopulmonary knowledge, but also is effective in the settlement of what is ‎learned. This study aimed to determine the effect of cardiopulmonary ‎resuscitation training on nursing students in Islamic Azad University, Tehran ‎Medical Branch using a lecturing method and with the aid of question and ‎answer. ‎Methodology: This study was a quasi-experimental type of research in which 79 ‎nursing students were trained by the conventional lecturing method with the aid ‎of slides, and question and answer. The test for investigating their knowledge ‎level was presented before and after the training. A researcher-made ‎questionnaire comprising 16 items was employed for the pre- and posttest. To ‎analyze the data, the SPSS, version 23, software was utilized and the value of P ‎was considered significant at p<0.05. Results: The students’ performance in the ‎pre-and posttest was 18.46±6.20 and 23.25±4.94, respectively. The comparison of ‎means before and after the training revealed a significant difference. Thus, using ‎this method was effective in the promotion of the students’ knowledge level.‎
Discussion: Concerning the present deficits and financial problems, it seems that the ‎lecturing method with the use of question and answer is ever influential in learning ‎as well as promoting the cognitive domains of nursing students.‎ Conclusion: Contrary to the presence of modern methods in student training, it ‎seems that the conventional lecturing method is continuously effective in Iran, and, ‎particularly, in regions where it is impossible to use modern training methods‎‎‏.
