This can be possible when there is up gradation of knowledge and attitude of health workers regarding PPE. In this study the researcher Aimed: to assess the effectiveness of Structured teaching programmed on use of PPE among nursing students. Research design: adopted for this study was quasi experimental design, samples for this study was selected through convenient sampling technique. Total sample size for study was 100. Pre- test was done for the subjects in both group experimental and control group and experimental group received structured teaching programme regarding PPE use. Control group subjects did not receive any special intervention. On the seventh day took post- test among subjects in both groups to assess the structured teaching programme regarding use of PPE. Data collection were analyzed with the help of descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: Mean post test score in experimental and control group was 25.72and 13.71 respectively. The mean difference score was 12.01. The standard deviation score in experimental group was 2.170 and in control group 9.131. The ‘t’ Value was 59.524 which was statistically significant at ‘P’ value 0.000.
