Introduction: In the event of health crisis, optimum performance crisis team personnel, are necessary and expected, and the key to success in managing the large number of victims with limited resources is triage; therefore triage training of crisis team nurses is very important.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of triage education by pre-advance organizer model on knowledge of crisis team nurses at AJA selected hospitals.

Materials and Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, during year 2015, two hospitals affiliated to the army, based on the centrality of the crisis, were considered as the study population and assigned to intervention and control groups, 50 nurses from the two hospitals were selected, based on available sampling. Educational content triage in crisis by the pre-advance organizer model in two sessions for an hour and a half was held for the experimental group while the control group did not receive any intervention. For both groups, pretest and post test tools, demographic questionnaire, and knowledge questionnaire were used. Finally data were analyzed by using descriptive analytic statistics using the SPSS version 22 software.

Results: The results showed that the mean knowledge of nurses before the intervention in the experimental group was 8.66±1.65 and in the control group was 7.57±1.19, respectively (p=0/264) , and after the intervention, in the experimental group it increased to 15.66 ±1.02 and in the control group to 8.3±0.92; the independent T-test showed a difference between the two groups, which was statistically meaningful (P<0/001).

Discussion and Conclusion: Considering the positive results, the use of pre-advance organizing model to promote awareness of crisis team nurses, and subject triage crisis training for faculty of nursing and retraining workshops are recommended.
