Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine the effect of educational program using the WhatsApp social network on knowledge and performance of nursing students in regard with safe injection in Shushtar University of Medical Sciences in 2020.

Demographic questionnaire, researcher-made questionnaire on knowledge and performance checklist were used for data collection. The knowledge questionnaire was completed by nursing students before intervention and their performance (before, during, and after injection) was assessed using inventory checklist. Then, a one-month course on safe injections using the WhatsApp social network was launched for students. Three months after intervention, students’ knowledge and performance were assessed again.
Results: The results showed that before the intervention, the average levels of knowledge and performance were 25.66±4.01 and 12.66±1.11, respectively. After intervention about safe injection, the levels of knowledge and performance increased to 28.65±5.05 and 13.50±1.25, respectively. The greatest effect of education on performance was observed after the injection. In addition, the knowledge and performance respectively in 76% and 66% of students were at an excellent level.
