A Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge Regarding Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Adult among Student Nurses (GNM 3rd Year) in a Selected School of Nursing, Dehradun, Uttrakhand
Abstract: A pre experimental research study was conducted to assess the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation in adult among student nurses (GNM 3rd year) in a selected school of nursing, Dehradun, uttrakhand. Pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test research design was adopted for this study. A Structured Knowledge Questionnaire regarding cardiopulmonary resuscitation was prepared and used to collect the data. The data obtained was analyzed and interpreted in terms of the objectives of the study. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis. Result of this study was that Majority (68.57 %) of GNM 3rdyear Students were in the age group of 20-25 years. Majority (51.42 %) were females. The highest percentages (51.42 %) were intermediate pass. Extreme percentage (92.85 %) of GNM 3rdyear Students were belongs to nonmedical family. Majority (74.28 %) GNM 3rd year students had previous exposure to CPR. In pretest knowledge score of GNM3rdyear students majority 82.85 % (percent) had average knowledge, while 18.57 % (percent) had poor knowledge and none of them had good knowledge regarding Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. The knowledge score of GNM 3rd year Students in post-test shows majority i. e. , 100 % acquired good knowledge while, none of them had poor and average knowledge regarding Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in adult among GNM 3rd year students. The calculated value of t-test is 30.406 and which is greater than the tabulated value of paired t test with 69 degree of freedom i. e.1.94 at 0.05. It shows that the STP was highly effective as there was a significant increase in the post-test knowledge scores among GNM 3rd year student on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in adult. On the basis of the present study, the researcher concluded that GNM 3rdyear Students had inadequate knowledge regarding Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in adult. Awareness regimen for knowledge on CPR using STP on Knowledge regarding Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation among GNM 3rd year Students was effective as their knowledge level improved significantly.
