Materials and Method: In this semi-experimental study 30 employed nurses in Baqiyatallah hospital of Tehran were selected by simple random sampling in 2011. The electronic teaching of air medical transport was done. The questionnaire was designed by researcher which consisted of 30 questions. This instrument assessed the effect of teaching in three levels of cognitive domain consisting of knowledge, comprehension and application before, immediately after teaching and 2 weeks later. Data were analyzed by SPSS 16, repeated measures ANOVA and independent T-Tests.

From 30 total scores, the scores of three levels were 14/3±3/71 before, 21/13±4/41 immediately after and 21/33±3/17 two weeks later.
