Abstract: Aim of the study: The study aims to find out the effect of self-instructional module on telenursing among staff nurses. Problem statement: What is the Effect of Self-Instructional Module (SIM) on Telenursing among Staff Nurses Working in Selected Tertiary Care Hospitals at Vidarbha Region, Maharashtra? Primary objective: The primary objective was used to find out the effect of self-instructional module on telenursing among staff nurses. Secondary objectives: 1) To assess the knowledge of staff nurses regarding telenursing in experimental and comparison group before intervention. 2) To assess the knowledge of staff nurses regarding telenursing in experimental and comparison group after intervention. 3) To find out the effect of SIM on telenursing among staff nurses. 4) To find out the association between post-test knowledge scores and selected demographic variables of staff nurses in experimental group. Method: A quasi-experimental design with non-randomized comparison group was used to assess the effect of Self-Instructional Module on knowledge regarding telenursing among 160 staff nurses. The data was collected by using self-administered questionnaire. Results: From the findings, it was observed that the pre-intervention demographic variables of staff nurses in control and experimental group were more or less similar revealing both the groups had similar characteristics. It was observed that the percentages of knowledge (control group; 23.7 & experimental group; 37.1%) on telenursing among staff nurses were more or less similar before intervention. However, after an intervention, the percentage of knowledge on telenursing was significantly increased from 37.1% to 79.2% in experimental group whereas it was almost remained unchanged in control group. There was a significant difference (p<0.0001) between pre-test and post-test knowledge scores in experimental group. And, there was also a significant difference (p<0.0001) between the post tests of control and experimental group. No significant association (p>0.05) was found between knowledge on telenursing and age, religion, qualification, professional experience, & income of staff nurses. But significant association (p<0.05) was found between knowledge on telenursing and gender. Interpretation and conclusion: The data were analyzed by applying descriptive and inferential statistic. The result of the study indicated that after intervention there was an improvement in the knowledge score. Analysis of data shows that highly difference found between the pre-test and post-test knowledge scores at the level of (p<0.05). The hypothesis proved and accepted.
