We supply an iterative method for solving nonlinear difference schemes appearing after discretization of evolution partial differential equations. Proposed method is a kind of two stage iterative process, which does not use derivatives. The theorem of third order convergence is proven. Results of numerical experiments with test equations, which sources are equation from echocardiography, are presented.
