Aim: To investigate the effect of on-job training sessions relating to early postpartum hemorrhage on improving nurses' information, practical achievement and their satisfaction. Methodology: A quasi-experimental study and an interventional pre and post-test study were used to study a sample of 78 nurses. The data was collected from the Obstetrics and Gynecology internal departments and outpatient clinics in Benha University Hospital, Benha Teaching and Health Insurance hospitals of Benha City, which is considered the capital of Qalyubia Governorate and affiliated to the Ministry of Health in Egypt. A purposive sample was employed with the use of 3 tools to collect the data, a structured interview a questionnaire; an observational checklist; and nurses' satisfaction tool. Results: The result of the present study shows a highly significant improvement in total information and practical skills among the pre- intervention studied sample compared to immediate and eight weeks' post-intervention, P= < 0.01. Additionally, 83% among the studied sample was satisfied with the new information included in the job training sessions. Also, the main obstacles that prevent nurses to comply with the implemented on job training sessions eight weeks' post-intervention are the sudden emergency cases which represent 75%. Conclusion: the present study concludes that a significant improvement in nurses' information and practices due to the implementation of on-job training sessions. Recommendations: Nursing standards, protocols and guideline must be designed to enhance nurses' information, practical achievement and their satisfaction. On the other hand, hospital administrators must direct their attention toward relieving nurses from administrative work and devoting their time for nurses' activities only.
