Introduction: Diabetes is the most common metabolic disorder in Iran. Due to the nature of the disease, the patient's cooperation in self care is very important. One of the most effective and affordable ways to empower patients is education, which, to be beneficial, must be provided in accordance with related standards. The current study was conducted to investigate accordance of time of discharge diabetic patients with the standards of education for diabetics Type 2 in hospitals, affiliated in Yazd University of Medical Sciences. Materials and Methods: At discharge, data on patient education provided by nurses to 385 diabetic patients, was documented using the “nursing diabetic patient education-discharge time check list” and were analyzed using descriptive statistics and SPSS 20. Results: Conformity rate of discharge nursing education in patients with Diabetes Type 2 with standards was 14.5%, which indicated a low quality of education. Conformity rate in the dimensions of “insulin therapy” was 34.7%, in “foot care education” was 6.75%, in “diet programs” was 1.8%, in “physical activity” was 0.1%, in “prevention of infection” was 1.8%, and in “oral antihyper­glycaemics drugs” was 13.3%. Conclusion: Based on the poor compliance with the standards of education for diabetics Type 2 patients, application of nursing clinical guidelines during discharge for type 2 diabetic patients and clinical supervision by nursing managers for optimizing quality of care is recommended.
