We are concerned with general third-order nonlinear boundary value problems. An existence theorem of solution is given under weaker conditions. In the meantime, an iterative algorithm with global convergence is presented. The higher order derivatives of approximate solution is obtained by using this method can approximate the corresponding derivatives of exact solution well.
