Background: This study formulated clinical guidelines for assessing nasogastric tube placement and for health education guidance according to evidence-based recommendations. Method: This study used a single group, pre-and postintervention design. Purposive sampling was used to recruit participants from nursing institutions in Taiwan. Results: Sixty-two individuals in charge of nursing institutions were recruited to participate in the in-service training program. Statisti-cally significant differences were observed in the four major items in the self-directed learning readiness scale (t = 3.85, p < .00; t = 3.99, p < .00; t = 2.94, p < .01; t = 4.13, p < .00). With regard to program sat-isfaction, the mean score was 4.88 to 4.9 points. The mean score for teaching satisfaction was 4.94 to 4.9 points. Furthermore, the participants scored more than 80 points in the online course test and the nasogastric tube placement skill. Conclusion: The individuals in-charge are expected to be willing to apply and promote methods of literature collation and recommendation in their respective institutions.
