Introduction: Learning professional laws and regulations are not achieved through traditional methods of education. The aim of this study was to present a new educational method for nurses concerning professional laws and regulations and compare the effect of this method on their knowledge. Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 150 nurses employed in educational hospitals of Sari and Qaem-Shahr were selected randomly and matched in three groups of 50 based on education and position. A combination of two methods of booklet and lecture was used for the first group (experiment group), booklet method only was used for the second (experiment), and no intervention was done in third (control group). Pre-test was performed for the three groups before the study and, after three weeks, the post-test was held. A questionnaire was used for gathering data and the data was analyzed by SPSS software. Results: There was a significant difference between the mean scores, before and after education in the first group (experiment group). The difference in the knowledge score between the 2 experiment groups and the control group (after intervention) was confirmed. Also, the difference between the mean scores of the groups 1 and 2 as well as groups 1 and 3 was confirmed. The difference between the mean scores of the groups, bas-ed on age and working experience was statistically significant. Conclusion: Considering the increase in the mean scores of the first experiment group after education, it is recommended to employ the combination method (lecture and booklet) in educating nurses about profess-ional laws and regulations.
