Introduction: In some occupations such as nursing, due to specific job circumstances, sleep quality is poor. Given the importance of sleep quality, this study examined the impact of sleep health education on sleep quality among nurses.

Methods: This was an interventional and quasi-experimental research. The study population included the nursing personnel serving at elected Lorestan university hospitals. Among them, 50 were randomly assigned to a control group and 50 were selected as the intervention group. Data collection was organized according to a questionnaire posing demographical questions as well as Pittsburgh Sleep Quality questionnaire. Training intervention for the intervention group was carried out. Consequently passing 45 days, both control and intervention groups were called out for questionnaire filling. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS software, independent t-test and McNemars test.

Results: The study results showed that after the intervention training, there was a significant difference in terms of the average sleep score among the personnel of nursing, and after the training intervention, the sleep status of the personnel got improved compared to those of the control group (P ≤ 0.05).

Conclusions: The study results showed that sleep quality-improving skills trainings had an important and decisive impact on the sleep quality of nursing personnel and holding educational courses in this field for personnel can be useful.
