  Background and Aim: Nursing education can remain dynamic through innovation and applying new learning and teaching methods. Achieving this goal requires the application of modern teaching methods by university teachers in their teaching plans. The present study was performed to compare the effect of traditional teaching method (based on pamphlets) with lecturing method regarding nursing students' learning and satisfaction.

  Materials and Methods: This semi- experimental study was done on 28 apprentice nursing students, who were divided into two equal case and control groups, in the pediatric ward of Imam Reza hospital. Educational content was presented in the form of educational booklet in the case group and lecture in the control group. Data collection included a researcher-made questionnaire consisting of four sections including demographic information, learning assessment test, satisfaction assessment of students, and an open question after its reliability and validity (Cronbach α =0.82). The obtained data was analyzed using SPSS software (V: 11.5), using descriptive and analytical statistics at the significant level P<0.05.

  Results: Mean score of posttest in booklet group was 17.16±1.18, and in the lecture group it was 15.66±1.45, which showed a significant increase compared to pretest (P<0.001). The rate of learning in pamphlet method was significantly more than lecture method (P=0.015).Besides, students' satisfaction with pamphlet method ( 31.5 ± 7.73) was significantly more (P<0.001).

  Conclusion: Regarding that most of specialized nursing courses are clinically presented during apprenticeship, using textual booklet as a student-centered method is recommended.
