Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of burns assessment protocol on knowledge and practice among staff nurses working in burns unit of IGGGH & PGI at Puducherry. The study was conducted by using pre-experimental design. The sample size is 32. Burns assessment protocol, self-administered knowledge questionnaire and observation check list prepared by the researcher was used. The study results shows that the mean post-test knowledge and practice score was significantly higher among staff nurses after intervention at P?0.001 level. The practice also improved day by day. When correlating the knowledge and practice the r and P value of pre and post test was r=0.19 P=0.23 which shows positive poor correlation and r=0.53 P=0.001*** which shows positive moderate correlation. The association of the post-test level of knowledge, practice of the staff nurses with experience evidenced that there was statistically significant association at ?2=10.08, P=0.02* ,?2=11.9, P=0.01**. That is experienced staff nurses gained more knowledge and practicing more than others. The study concluded that out of the 32 samples, only 9 (28.15%) attended continuing nursing education programme (CNE). So we should encourage all the staff nurses to update their knowledge by attending CNE programme.
