In order to release pressure or remove poisons, they can also suction out stomach contents. So the main aim of the study is to explore the practice regarding the knowledge and practice of the nasogastric tube insertion among the newly joined staff nurses in the Hospital and to provide them the Teaching by Video Assisted Teaching to promote the easy and comfortable insertion of Nasogastric tube. Therefore the present study is aimed to assess the effectiveness of Video Assisted Teaching on the practice and knowledge of the newly joined staff nurses on the Nasogastric tube insertion. Objectives: 1) To assess the knowledge regarding Nasogastric Tube Insertion among Newly joined Staff Nurses. 2) To evaluate the effectiveness of Video assisted Teaching Program on the Level of knowledge regarding Nasogastric Tube Insertion. 3) To find out the association between Demographic Variables and on the level of pre - test knowledge and practice scores regarding Nasogastric Tube Insertion. 4) To find out the correlation between Knowledge scores and Practice scores. Materials and Methods: Pre - experimental research design was adopted to accomplish the objectives. NonProbability purposive sampling technique was used under which they were assigned in groups by using stratified simple random sampling to select the samples. The sample consists of 60 newly joined staff nurses having Experience under 1 year. The pretest and post - test assessment of knowledge of Staff nurses was carried out using the structured practice questionnaire. The obtained data were analyzed and interpreted using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: The findings of the study revealed that, post test overall mean score of level of knowledge was 21.88 which was found to be higher than the pre test overall mean score of level of knowledge was 13.12. The overall improvement in the mean score of knowledge was 8.76 and the obtained paired t - value was 54.46 which was significant at p<0.05 level. The results show that there was significant improvement in level of knowledge in post test after administration Video Assisted Teaching of nasogastric Tube insertion. Thus, Video Assisted Teaching was effective in improving the level of knowledge and practice among newly joined staff nurses.
