The researcher assessed the knowledge of staff nurses using self-structured questionnaire. After conducting a pretest for the samples, the self-instruction module regarding prevention of medication errors was given. After 5 days post test was conducted using the same tool. The result shows that among the samples10% had good knowledge, 38% had average level and 51% had poor level of knowledge on pretest. Inposttest 45% had excellent level of knowledge, 48.3% had good level of knowledge, 6.6% had poor level of knowledge.
