Study skills are abilities and approaches applied in learning. They are generally critical to success and are considered essential for requiring good experiences and useful for learning throughout one's life. First year nursing students undergo a major transition because of the excessive work and lack of study skills. Promotion of appropriate study skills reduces unwanted stress and anxiety among the nursing students. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on study skills among first year B.Sc. Nursing students and to associate the study skills with socio demographic variables. The research design adopted was quasi experimental one group pretest and posttest design. The study has been conducted at College of Nursing, SVIMS, Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. A total of 89 first years B.Sc. Nursing students were selected by convenient sampling method.
