The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a quick response code-based nursing education program to improve the competence of operation and recovery room nurses. An experimental methodological design was used to develop a quick response code-based nursing educational program and analyze its effects and nurses' satisfaction with its use. The quick response code-based nursing education program was developed in five steps based on the ADDIE model: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. The program was built on smartphones, and a Web site was linked to it. After testing the program for 40 days, nurses' attitudes toward various medical devices were significantly less negative. Nurses were able to use a large number of medical devices and were highly satisfied and willing to engage with the quick response code-based nursing educational program. In the context of nursing education, introducing educational content using quick response codes helps to improve nurses' knowledge and competence in providing high-quality nursing care and medical services.
