Treatment of Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS) usually begins as soon as the baby is born, sometimes in the delivery room. Most infants who show signs of RDS are quickly moved to a special intensive care unit called a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). There they receive around-the-clock treatment from a group of health care professionals who specialize in treating premature infants. Treatment in the NICU is designed to limit stress on the baby and meet his or her basic needs of warmth, nutrition, and protection. This study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Self Instructional Module regarding New-Borns Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Thrissur, Kerala. The study included staff nurses (N = 60) who are qualified in Diploma and Degree Nursing working in Thrissur Hospital, Kerala. A self-administered questionnaire was used to capture the data from 60 participants based on convenience sampling method. The data from each of the questionnaire were coded and entered into SPSS software which was used for data analysis.
