Blood transfusions are necessary for accident victims, surgical clients, clients with blood disorders, burns, malaria, severe blood loss as well as altered bone marrow function related to radiation therapy, chemotherapy and other medications to save their lives. A one group pretest and post test pre experimental design was adopted for the study. A pre test was conducted later structured teaching programme was intervened and again a post test was conducted to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme after a group of 7 days.
The study was conducted in Navodaya College of Nursing, Raichur and 85 III year B.Sc. Nursing students were selected by purposive sampling technique. Collected data was analyzed by using both the descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results and Interpretation: In pretest, the mean score of the sample was 23.45 (SD= 5.76) and the post test mean score was (SD= 6.48) with paired ‘t’ value of 49.57. This showed that the structured teaching programme was effective in enhancing the knowledge level of the sample regarding blood transfusion. There was a statistically significant association found between the post test knowledge score of the sample with selected variables like gender, type of family and exposure to clinical experience.
