Abstract: Traditional classroom learning has been an essential part of undergraduate nursing education in India. With Covid-19 pandemic, nursing education has not been an exception to explore and adapt to alternative strategies of teaching and learning. Many institutions have moved to online classes with little or no time for students to be prepared for this sudden paradigm shift in newer learning techniques. Hence, a study was conducted to determine the level of self-directed learning readiness towards online classes among baccalaureate nursing students. A descriptive cross-sectional study design was adopted. Proportionate Stratified Random Sampling technique was used to collect data from 92 students. A standardised (Self-Directed Learning Readiness Scale for Nurse Education) was used to collect data. Data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The overall self- directed learning readiness of students was found to be 72.8 % with mean score of self-management higher than mean score of self-control and desire for learning. The levels of readiness for self-directed learning were not found to be associated with any of the demographic and educational variables with differences considered significant at p < 0.05.
