Striving for excellence has long been at the heart of academia. A descriptive non experimental study was conducted to compare the perspective towards Six Thinking Hats and Traditional Teaching Technique among Baccalaureate nursing students. The conceptual frame work used for the study was based on General System Theory by Von Bertalanaffy. The data was collected from 48 Baccalaureate nursing students meeting inclusion criteria selected by simple random sampling (lottery method) and using a Student Perspective Survey Form developed by researchers. The result shows that 21(87.5%) of the samples verbalized Six Thinking Hats Technique as an excellent teaching strategy while 10 (41.67%) verbalized Traditional Teaching Technique as excellent. Majority of the samples, 23(95.8%) revealed that Six Thinking Hats Technique helped them to produce creative ideas, understand the feelings of patient and developed creativity in them. In the Traditional Teaching majority 22 (91.6%) of the sample revealed that it increased their interest and motivation in the class. There was no significant association between the perspective of Baccalaureate nursing students towards Six Thinking Hats Technique and Traditional Teaching Technique with selected demographic variables. The study concludes that Six Thinking Hats Technique is an excellent teaching method as compared to Traditional Teaching Technique.
