Obstetric emergencies are life threatening medical conditions of serious and often dangerous in nature, developing suddenly and unexpectedly during pregnancy, labor or after delivery and demanding immediate attention in order to save life of mother and baby. A pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used to conduct a study on BSc nursing 3rd year students at Bibi Halima College of Nursing and Medical Technology Srinagar Kashmir to determine the effectiveness on knowledge regarding Management of Selected Obstetric Emergencies. In the present study non-probability purposive sampling technique was used. The findings of the study revealed that majority of study subjects (70%) had average knowledge, 30% had Poor knowledge and none of the study subjects had good knowledge regarding management of selected obstetric emergencies in pre-test. In post-test majority of the study subjects (88%) had good knowledge, and least (12%) had average knowledge and none of the study subjects had poor knowledge regarding management of selected obstetric emergencies. The mean post-test knowledge level (53.2±0.83) was higher than the mean pre-test knowledge level (25.7±0.956), which indicates the effectiveness of structured Teaching Programme in increasing the level of knowledge of BSc nursing 3rd year students regarding management of selected obstetric emergencies at 0.05 level of significance. There was no statistically significant association between pre-test knowledge level and demographic variables like gender, residence and any previous exposure at p<0.05. The findings of the study concluded that Study subjects didn’t possess adequate knowledge regarding management of selected obstetric emergencies in pre-test so there was dire need to enhance their knowledge regarding management of obstetric emergencies.
