Newborn care and resuscitation is an important starting point for any neonatal programme that is required to ensure the best possible start in life. The important causes of neonatal deaths is birth asphyxia and along with serious infections results in more than 50% of all neonatal deaths. Neonatal Resuscitation skills are essential for all health care providers who are involved in the delivery of newborns. Nurses play an important role in improving intra natal and immediate post natal care. This can be done by demonstration, health education and guidance to the staff nurses and making changes toward better care practice. Hence the present study was conducted to assess the pre and post knowledge of staff nurses on neonatal resuscitation. The data was collected from 40 staff nurses using structured knowledge questionnaire .The study results revealed that the mean post test knowledge score (17.92) was higher than the mean pre test knowledge score(13.17).Enhancement between the pre-test and post test was obtained by paired “t” test value 6.81 for knowledge on neonatal resuscitation at p <0.001.which was highly significant in improving the knowledge of staff nurses. There is extremely significant association between the demographic variables like mass media exposer and the post test knowledge as the chi square value is 17.14 at p value 0.002.
