Under normal circumstances, intrathoracic pressure is below atmospheric pressure. When this pressure changes because of excess air and/or fluid, the lungs may collapse. If this occurs, a chest tube is inserted into the intrapleural space. Pre-experimental single group pretest posttest design was used to assess the knowledge of 30 Staff nurses with non probability convenient sampling technique. Structured knowledge assessment questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge of Staff nurses and self instructional module was administered to improve knowledge of staff nurses regarding nursing management of patients with chest drainage. Findings of the present study indicated that there was increase in mean post test knowledge scores (23.0) as compared to mean pretest knowledge scores (13.20) of staff nurses regarding nursing management of patients with chest tube drainage which established effectiveness of Self instructional module. There was statistically significant association (p<0.05) of the post test knowledge scores of staff nurses with their selected socio demographic variables of Professional education only while there was no statistically significant association (p>0.05) of the post test knowledge scores with the other socio demographic variables.
