The general characteristics of the subjects were analyzed with real number and percentage, the knowledge level of infant CPR of nurses was done with average and standard deviation, and the difference in the knowledge of infant CPR according to the general characteristics was done with T-test. Findings: There was a statistically significant difference in age (p=.004), position (p=.002), service period (p=.008), education experience (p=.50), and a certificate (p=.001).
