The internet, which provides the access, share and communication information of people worldwide and is regarded as a revolution, has an increasingly important role in health education, research and applications. Health professionals search for new ways to facilitate and improve the provision of effective health education to individuals and communities. The developments in computer and internet technologies and high priority of finance for nursing studies in technological terms lead researchers to develop, use and test different types of web-based initiatives. In addition, a large amount of quality evidence that shows the success of health education attempts carried out on the web draws the attention of health professionals responsible for providing health education. This study aims to analyze web-based health education and provide health professionals with a point of view regarding its use in pediatric nursing.
