Abstract: Objective: To decide the impacts of triage training dependent on Emergency Seriousness Record (ESR) on advancing the knowledge and performance of nurses and Subjective Record of Resuscitation Room Methods: This study was a quasi -Experimental study being performed in emergency Hospital at Mansoura university 2018. For this purpose, 100 members from Nurses and professionals of Emergen-cy prescription in the Emergency department with the incorporation criteria for support were cho-sen. Data collection instruments incorporated a survey comprising of two sections, (personal character-istics, and knowledge) and the performance assessment checklist was prepared. Content validity was used to determine validity. The test-retest method, 20 were applied to determine the reliability of the questionnaire. Inter observer reliability and the correlation between the two observers and imaging modalities were measured to determine the reliability of the performance checklist. The questionnaires and checklist were completed by the participants before, 2 days and 12 weeks after completion of the training. Workshop in two 9-hour sessions was provided which consisted of lectures, questions, and answers. Results: The triage scores were 21.4±6.2, 35.6± 3.2 and 32.2±4.6 before, 2 days and 12 weeks after training, respectively. Triage performance score increased from 49.8 ± 9.9 before training to 59.8 ± 7.6, two days after training and to 59.7 ± 8.1 twelve weeks later (p=0.001). In addition to triage training of the nurses the emergency department, Subjective Record of Resuscitation Room were impressively upgraded. Other results showed that there was no significant correlation between individual character-istics and personal knowledge of triage score 12-week after training (r=0.018, p=0.126). Conclusion: The results of the present study showed that triage education influences the practice and knowledge of nurses and improves the Subjective Record of Resuscitation Room. Therefore, it is rec-ommended to include theoretical and practical training of triage for nurses in hospitals.
