Nurses as the largest group of health care providers can play important role in this field through increasing their knowledge and awareness level. This study was conducted to determine the effect of education on nurse’s awareness about disaster management.

The reliability of questionnaire was confirmed by obtaining Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of 0.88. The data were analyzed statistically in the SPSS software.

Results: The results of this study showed that the level of nurses’ awareness about disaster management and their approach to this issue had significantly differed after the educational intervention (P=0.002). Also, the disaster management education was effective on nurses' awareness to manage disastrous situation (P=0.002). In addition, there was a significant relation between attending educational sessions (P=0.002) and some other variables with nurses' awareness level.
