Coronary heart disease is now the leading cause of mortality worldwide and accounts for the death of 3.8 million men and 3.4 million women each year. In developing countries, coronary artery diseases have been recognized as a major public health problem. Cardiovascular emergencies account for at least 30% of all medical emergencies. During cardiovascular emergencies, the survival of the patient depends on a rapid response that provides high quality treatment based on latest guideline. Administration of the correct drugs is an important aspect of this process and among the health team members nurses are taking an increasingly important role. However most of the studies done by the various researchers found that majority of the nurses are unaware about the vital drugs used in the cardiac emergencies. Hence the researcher felt the need of conducting a study to assess the knowledge on emergency cardiac medications prior to and after giving a structured teaching program among the student nurses, as they are becoming the future nurses. Hence the main objective of the study was to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching program on knowledge regarding emergency cardiac medications among nursing students. The research approach adopted for the study was pre experimental and the research design was one group pretest post test design. 30 Nursing students of Rama college of nursing were selected as the samples by using purposive sampling. After getting the consent from the samples, demographic data were collected by semi structured questionnaire and knowledge was assessed from the sample by using structured questionnaire. The pretest knowledge was assessed on the first day and structured teaching program was given on the same day and posttest knowledge was assessed with the same tool on the fifth day of structured teaching program. The study was statistically significant at .001 level. The total mean post- test knowledge score (17.5) was significantly higher than the mean pretest score (11.5). Hence the study conclude that the structured teaching program was effective in imparting knowledge regarding emergency cardiac medication.
