Introduction: Endotracheal intubation is a life-saving procedure. It is the most common procedure performed during life-threatening emergency conditions, most commonly in ICU patients. Nurses are the ones who handle these patients and also assist during this life-saving procedure. The researcher thus found it relevant to evaluate the efficiency of Self-Instructional Module on nurses regarding the care of patients with endotracheal intubation. Objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of Self-Instructional Module on knowledge of nurses regarding the care of patients with endotracheal intubation by comparing mean pre-test and mean post-test knowledge scores; to determine the association between the level of pre-test knowledge scores of nurses with their selected socio-demographic variables. Materials and methods: A quantitative, pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design was conducted among 60 nurses using a non-probability purposive sampling technique. A structured knowledge questionnaire was used to collect data from the participants. Conclusion: In the pre-test, 55% nurses had moderately adequate knowledge whereas in the post test 83.3% had adequate knowledge. The obtained ‘t’ value was 28.86. Thus, this study concludes that the Self-Instructional Module was effective in enhancing the knowledge of staff nurses regarding care of patients with endotracheal intubation.
