Background: Organ donation is the process of a person donating organs for transplant. These are given to someone with damaged organs that need to be replaced. Organ transplantation is the most preferred treatment for many of the end- stage organ disease as it increases life expectancy. Besides long –term survival benefits, organ donation also improves quality of life in many circumstances.
Methodology: The research design adopted for this study was pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design. Sixty final year diploma nursing (GNM) students were selected by convenience sampling technique. The tool used for data collection was a structured knowledge questionnaire. As an intervention, administration of planned teaching programme regarding organ donation was given.
Result: The study revealed that pre-test only very few students (16.7%) had good knowledge, 36.7% had average knowledge and 46.6% had poor knowledge. In the post test all the students 100% had good knowledge. Data presented in Table 2 and Figure ranged from 6-18 and the mean score was 12.7 with 2.77. In the post ranged from 20-25 and the mean score was much higher (23.0±1.72) than the pre score. The mean difference was 10.3. The obtained ‘t’ value (t59=24.52) is higher than the table value (t59=2.00, p≤0.05). The findings are highly significant and it can be inferred that planned teaching programme regarding organ donation was highly effective in improving the knowledge of final year GNM students.
