Introduction: Managing Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation depends on having sufficient knowledge and skills for this vital care. Educating nurses on pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation helps nurses choose the right course of action and do it skillfully. The choice of pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation training method plays an important role in maintaining knowledge and increasing nurses' skills to maintain their survival.

Methods: This review study by searching the databases of Google Scholar, SID, Scopus, Cochrane, PubMed, Magiran, CINHAL, and Web of Science, using Persian keywords pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation, nurse, education, knowledge, skills and equivalent Their English was done. In total, 46 articles with a time limit of the last 5 years were obtained by deleting 11 articles whose full text Not available; finally, 35 articles were included in the study

Results: Pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation training for nurses has changed from a pattern of oral instruction for reading books and slides to practical simultaneous instruction on modeling; And it has evolved from merely practicing resuscitation techniques at every stage, to simulation based on creating the same conditions as a real baby to make decisions and perform the correct method of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, even by mobile phone software.

Conclusion:Choosing the methods of teaching pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation to nurses, methods can be more effective that, in addition to transferring knowledge, also improve the skill of applying that knowledge. New educational methods make it possible to increase children's cardiopulmonary resuscitation skills Provided in nurses
