Introduction: Today, organizations have special attention on effective in-service training for their growth and development. The aim of this study is to present a report on the first and second levels of Kirkpatrick's model for the effectiveness of in-service training of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for nurses.

Methods: This is a cross-sectional evaluation study based on Kirkpatrick's model. For this purpose, in-service training workshop of CPR was held and then evaluated. With   eighty nurses participated in the study with informed consent where simple sampling method was used. The in-service training course was evaluated based on reaction and learning levels of Kirkpatrick model.

Results: The effectiveness score obtained in the first level of model was 4.2±0.32. The effectiveness score in the second level of model, which is evaluated with research made questionnaire using pretest-posttest design, was 4.7±0.09 that is statistically significant.

Conclusion: Although the next level of evaluation is in progress and the results are still unmet, the results of this study showed that CPR in-service training has good efficacy and Kirkpatrick evaluation model can be used as an appropriate model for evaluating the effectiveness of nursing in-service training.
