Introduction: Nursing has always been developing as a clinical field. Nurses are the first staff who came to the scene during the crisis.
Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the clinical skills of military nurses in critical circumstances in selected military hospital in Mashhad.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on 150 military nurses in 2017 using convenience sampling. Data were collected from military nurses with questionnaire, the questionnaire included 30 skills and three levels including poor (rated lower than 79), moderate (rated 80 to 125) and good (rated higher than 125), then data were analyzed using SPSS 16.
Results: According to the results, 56.6% of the samples were female and 43.4% male, the mean of age was 38.7 years old. 75.83% with bachelor degree and 71.67% were nurses. Clinical skill of nurses were moderate in critical circumstances. Those who were 41-50 years old and had been working for 10-25 years were more skillful compared to the other groups.  So, no significant relationship was found between the other demographic variables. They were the best at collecting data and recording the clinical information (nursing record) during the crisis (31.6%) and the poorest in   nursing care skills from NBC injured (63.1%).
Discussion and Conclusion: Military personnel, including the treatment staff during the crisis, have a significant role in reducing injuries and casualties.  It seems that passing the related training courses and practical exercises could increase the skills of military personnel facing the crisis.
