Introduction: Nursing interventions have a direct impact on patients’ clinical status. Nurses should be aware of the dangers of intubation tube suction and have continuous training in this field. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of education standard suction with small group on nurses’ performance in intensive care unit.
Methods : This was a quasi-experimental study which was conducted before and after intervention in 2017. The statistical population included 40 nurses working in the intensive care unit who were selected by convenience sampling. First, nurses’ performance in the suction process was evaluated by a standard checklist  in an imperceptible way. Then, standard suction training was performed in three sessions of one hour using the small group discussion method. One month after training, nurses’ suction function was evaluated again and analyzed by SPSS16.
Results: The mean of standard suction score after training (64.4 ± 3.7) was significantly different from the pre-training (58.5 ± 3.5), which is statistically significant (t-test) (P>0/05).
Conclusion: The results showed that nurses’ function in the area of suction needs more attention. In order to improve the clinical performance of nurses, the use of training in small groups is useful. Therefore, training courses in small groups should be offered in the form of in-service nursing courses.
