The results of educational needs assessment are widely used, including in the planning of curriculum, identification of issues and problems of individuals, assessment of comprehensive learning, enhancement and improvement of safety, and providing feedback to the individual or educational interventions in the organization. Therefore, this study was designed to determine the educational needs of nursing students before and after learning. This quasi-experimental study was performed on 65 nursing students in Babol University of Medical Sciences during the first semester of 2016-17. The data gathering tool was a researcher-made questionnaire that was designed in two sections: demographic characteristics and educational needs questionnaire. Students were randomly divided into groups of 6-7. The validity of the tool was determined by the content validity method and its reliability was obtained through test-retest. Data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics (t-test, paired t-test, correlation, ANOVA) using SPSS software. The results showed that there is a significant difference between the mean scores of students before and after training (P<0.001). Students have the highest level of ability to communicate with each other, training in the field of familiarity with the principles of serotyping with the best effectiveness, the ability to interpret blood and urine tests, and areas of ability to do certain things such as dressing, blood sampling and the ability to perform various injections were ranked respectively. The most important use of the results of the needs assessment is the development of educational programs for the purposes of the organization. Without a clear vision of the needs, efforts to develop organizational learning will waste valuable resources.
