Introduction: Journal club is one of the classical methods of training instructors. This study aimed at investigating the quality of implementing journal clubs in Iranian nursing faculties from the viewpoints of university instructors. Methods: This descriptive study was performed on instructors of nursing faculties in faculties of nursing where journal clubs were implemented in 2013-2014 academic years. Participants were selected through the census method. Data collection tool was a research-made questionnaire whose validity and reliability were verified. Five-point Likert scale in terms of desirability (completely desirable, desirable, relatively desirable, undesirable, and completely undesirable) was used for the responses in the questionnaire. Data were analyzed by conducting descriptive statistics. Results: The mean of the whole quality of journal clubs implementation was 1.83±0.34 out of 4 that is “relatively desirable”. The highest quality was in the implementation domain (post implementation) 2.47±0.53, organizing and planning domain (prior to implementation) 2.43±0.89 and implementation domain (during implementation) 2.08±0.43 respectively. Conclusion: Given the relatively desirable quality of journal club implementation in nursing faculties it is suggested to carry out more researches in various faculties in order to examine and improve the quality of journal clubs.
