Evaluative research approach with pre experimental one group pre test post test was used to find out effectiveness of STP on CPR among nursing students. Total 30 samples were taken for the study, the total mean percentage 66.33% was obtained in the area of “General concept of CPR” with mean and standard deviation of 7.96 ± 1.65. The mean percentage of 30.76 was obtained in the area of “steps and techniques of CPR” with mean and standard deviation of 4.00 ± 1.53 and the mean percentage of 37.20 was obtained in the area of ‘post resuscitation care” with mean and standard deviation of 1.86 ± 0.81. Quartile distribution of pre-test post-test knowledge scores of students showed a significant difference between the quartiles of pre-test and post-test scores. Pre-test median score was 12.4 whereas post-test median score was 27.2. The difference of 14.8 indicates out of 30 maximum attainable scores. The difference between the knowledge score of post-test and pre-test of III year B.Sc. Nursing students were analyzed using paired ‘t’ . The result was found to be very highly significant (t= 27.44, p = 0.001). A very high increase in the post-test scores was observed in III year degree students regarding CPR.
