Telenursing (providing nursing care at a distance) is an efficient technique for transporting educational services for anemic patients to their homes that consequently promote nurse-patient relationship, safe time and reduce the cost of treatment. Aim: Aim of this study is to investigate the effects of exercise training combined with three months nurse–telephone follow up calls on dietary habits and fatigue level among adult patient with anemia. Design & Method: A quasi experimental study was conducted on 60 anemic patients who were selected randomly in medicine department and hematology outpatient clinic of Menoufia university hospitals using three tools of data collection; structured interviewing questionnaire to assess the patients’ sociodemographic and medical data; dyspnea analogue scale to assess exercise tolerance and; fatigue scale. Exercise training was specific for the study subjects and they were followed by telephone follow up calls for three months by the researchers. Results: All anemic patients suffer from fatigue before intervention.

Also the dietary habits were changed to better after intervention. Conclusion: The exercise training combined with follow up calls was effective in improving dietary habits and decreasing fatigue level among anemic patients.
