A study was carried out with the primary aim to compare the effectiveness of Self Instructional Module (hereafter referred as SIM) and Demonstration method of teaching on Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (hereafter referred as CPR). The other objectives were to assess the knowledge and practice of nursing students after administration of SIM on CPR and to assess the knowledge and practice of nursing students after administration of demonstration method of teaching on CPR. The study used quasi experimental approach with posttest only design and was conducted in selected Nursing Colleges in Ahmedabad, Gujarat state. 30 samples from one Nursing College were selected in the demonstration group and 30 samples from another Nursing College were selected in the SIM group with simple random sampling technique. In view of the nature of the problem and the accomplishment of the objective, a demonstration plan on CPR and a SIM on CPR was planned and prepared respectively. The assessment of the knowledge was done with the help of structured knowledge questionnaire and an observational checklist was developed to assess the practice of the students. Both the tools were reliable and were validated by the experts. The mean posttest knowledge score and practice score of demonstration group were 27.43 and 13.4 respectively while for SIM group they were 21.6 and 8.83 respectively. Comparison of the posttest knowledge and practice scores between demonstration and SIM groups were tested using unpaired ‘t’ test and it was found significant at 0.05 level. It was revealed that demonstration is more effective method of teaching CPR as compared to that of SIM.
