An effort to build a culture of patient safety in hospitals requires commitment that is influenced by nurses' knowledge, attitude and behavior. This study aimed to determine the effect of learning by the lecture and role-playing methods on nurses' knowledge, attitude, and behavior in applying patient safety standards. The study is a quasi-experimental study using two groups with a pre-test and post-test design and a sample of 24 nurses with total sampling. Data were collected using questionnaires and observation sheets and analyzed using univariate and bivariate analysis. The results showed no significant difference in the values of nurses' knowledge, attitude, and behavior in applying patient safety standards in the control group before and after intervention with a p value of 0.056, 0.663, and 0.927 respectively. On the other hand, the results showed significant differences in the values of nurses' knowledge, attitude, and behavior in applying patient safety standards in the intervention group before and after intervention with a p value of 0.001, 0.021, and 0.002 respectively.
