Abstract Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the second-year nursing students' knowledge of emergency treatment in burns and the effectiveness of the training given to them on this topic. Method: The sample of this descriptive study was comprised 110 nursing students studying at a university health sciences faculty. The data were collected by a personal information form and a questionnaire developed by the researchers. In the analysis of the data, number and percentage calculations, arithmetic mean and paired t test were used. Results: It was found that the mean age of the students was 21.0±1.8, 65.4% were female and 59.1% were living in a house with a stove. 54.3% of the students encountered scald burns, 29.4% applied yogurt to the burned area and 90% did not pop the blisters. The post-test mean score was significantly higher than the pre-test mean score after the training (p<0.001). A statistically significant difference was also found between the pre-test and post-test mean scores in the sub-scales of approaches to flame burns, chemical burns, electrical burns, radiation burns and ice burns (p<0.05). However, no significant difference was seen between pre-test and post-test mean subscale scores in approaches to scalding and inhalation burns (p>0.05) (Table 3).Conclusion: In nursing education, the theoretical knowledge and applications of students to increase emergency response skills in burns that it will be effective in increasing awareness about.
