Introduction: To elucidate the mastery of diabetes knowledge of nurses with different professional titles, educational backgrounds, departments, etc., and to understand the contents of nurses' training needs for diabetes knowledge; to clarify the training direction of nurses' diabetes knowledge for managers.

Materials and methods: Through convenience sampling from March 2019 to April 2020, 326 clinical nurses in our hospital were enrolled and assessed using the self-designed general data scale and clinical nurses diabetes knowledge assessment scale.

Results: The total scores of diabetes knowledge of 326 obstetrics and gynecology nurses was (61.89±10.38) points, with a total score rate of 61.89%, the highest score rate of 71.66% in diet therapy and the lowest score rate of 43.58% in drug therapy. The drug therapy scores and blood glucose monitoring scores presented the highest correlation with total scores, with correlation coefficients both greater than 0.7. The stepwise regression analysis demonstrated that nurses' departments and whether nurses participated in training were the main factors for nurses in Obstetrics & Gynecology to master diabetes knowledge.

Conclusion: The diabetes cognition among nurses in Obstetrics & Gynecology hospitals is at a moderate-to-low level, suggesting that hospital managers should pay attention to diabetes cognition among specialized nurses, and should pay attention to training nurses on related diabetes knowledge, improving nurses' ability to deal with emergencies of diabetic patients.
