The aim of this study is to select a preferred method to train nursing professional ethics. A quasi-experimental study of two groups of before and after was used while nursing students were trained into two groups of multimedia software and Lecture. At first, all students were selected based on a census method; then random assignment was used to allocate them to the two groups. The number of samples in each group was 30. Using the nursing professional ethics questionnaire and after verifying the content validity and reliability, the tests were performed in three time spans of before training, immediately after training and four weeks after training. Data analysis was performed using t-test and variance analysis via SPSS software version 20.
