Abstract: Aim: The study attempted to assess the knowledge on prevention of needle stick injury among B.Sc. Nursing 2nd year students before and after administration of self instructional module to experimental group; evaluate the effectiveness of self instructional module on knowledge regarding prevention of needle stick injury among B.Sc. Nursing 2nd year students. Methods: A quasi-experimental study was carried out with 60 samples from P.G College of Nursing, Gwalior. Out of 60 students 30 students were in control group and 30 students were in experimental group. Convenient sampling technique was used to select the subjects. Self administered tool-multiple choice statements were used to evaluate the knowledge before and after administration of self instructional module. Data was analyzed with both descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: The result showed that the mean pre-test and post-test knowledge score of control group are 21.33and 21.8 respectively and standard deviations are 6.38 and 6.12 respectively. The mean pre-test and post-test knowledge score of experimental group are 22.40 and 39.23 respectively and standard deviations are 7.44 and 5.63 respectively. There was no significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge scores of control group as assessed by paired ‘t’ test value at 1.38 (NS), t(29)=3.66 (p<0.001) but there was significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge score of experimental group as assessed by paired ‘t’ test value at 14.14(HS), t(29)=3.66(p<0.001). Conclusion: Thus for this study one can conclude that self instructional module could be an effective strategy to improve the knowledge of B.Sc. Nursing 2nd year students regarding prevention of needle stick injury.
