A comparative study was conducted amongst 41 first year nursing students of Jahrom University of Medical Sciences who participated in the course of mental diseases in 2008–۲۰۰۹٫ The students were randomly divided into two groups of face to face and blended educational methods. The tests used in this research included a short form of Metacognition Test (mcq 30). There was a significant increase in student’s metacognition in both groups after conducting of the course. There was a significant relationship between teaching, student’s final score and student’s metacognition.
