Aims: Evidence-based nursing guidelines are important tools in increasing the quality of nurses’ clinical work. Assessment of patient’s satisfaction is one of the most important indicators of measuring quality of provided care to patients.

Before and after implementation of guidelines education program, patients’ satisfaction rate was measured by patient’s satisfaction standard instrument (PSI) and data was evaluated by SPSS19 statistical software and by using mean and standard deviation descriptive statistics and t-test and chi-square inferential statistics.
