Abstract: Objectives of the study were to assess nursing students knowledge and skills of using Partograph, develop a teaching plan and evaluate the efficacy of Lecture cum Demonstration method on their knowledge and skills of using Partograph. Quasi experimental (one group pre-test and post-test) research design was adopted in quantitative approach. Total enumeration sampling technique was used to obtain an adequate size of the sample. Forty one (41) GNM third year nursing students were included in the study to achieve the appropriate power of the study. A structured knowledge questionnaire and simplified Partograph were used for data collection. The overall mean pre and post-test knowledge score was found to be 7.87 & 16.63 and standard deviation 2.27 & 2.19. And overall mean pre and post-test skills score was found to be 3.02 & 6.41 and standard deviation 0.90 & 0.89. Paired t test shows statistical significance at p<0.05 level. Conclusion- In this study the mean post-test knowledge and skills scores were significantly higher than the mean pre-test knowledge and skills scores of the nursing students.
