Introduction: Health promotion is one of the best ways to maintain health. Correction of health promoting behaviors is essential for students. Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of peer education on nursing students' health promoting behaviors.
Materials and Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 80 nursing and midwifery students were selected by available sampling method. Data gathering tool was Pender Health Promotion Questionnaire. Before education, health promoting behaviors were examined. Then, the first and second semester students were educated in a 4-hour 1.5-hour session, with peer education. Two months after education, post-test was done. Data were analyzed by SPSS/16 software.
Results: There were no significant differences between the two peer groups in terms of the mean score of health promotion behaviors and their related dimensions (P> 0.05) before education. However, after education, the mean score of health promotion behaviors and their dimensions in the peer group with MSc  student had a statistically significant increase compared to the peer group with  bachelor's degree students (P <0.05).
Conclusion: The effectiveness of health promoting behaviors education which the leader of peer group is a MSc student was better than that peer group whose leader is under graduated students.
