The sample size comprised of 96 nursing students of a selected College of Nursing.Samples were selected by purposive sampling technique. Data were collected using a semi structured knowledge questionnaire regarding National health programs which was followed by Jigsaw technique. Result: The mean pre test knowledge score ( 10.86±1.139) was less than the post test knowledge score( 17.54±1.421) .The paired ‘ t’ value computed between the pre test and post test knowledge (t=39.93 , p=0.01) was statistically significant.There was no significant association between pre test knowledge scores with age of the nursing students.After Jigsaw technique 100% (96) students reported that Jigsaw technique was helpful to learn National Health Programs.About 97% (93) students said that they value Jigsaw technique than lecture method of teaching Interpretation and conclusion: The students lacked knowledge regarding National Health Programs. In the pretest majority of nursing students, 89% (85) reported that they don’t like to study National Health Programs as it is very boring. But in the post assessment 97%(93) students like to study National Health Programme with the help of Jigsaw technique.
