During the 1970’s researchers discovered that umbilical cord blood could supply the same kind of hematopoietic stem cells as bone marrow donor. And so, umbilical cord blood banking began by collecting and storing umbilical cord blood1.


The present study aimed to assess the effectiveness of self instructional module on knowledge regarding cord blood banking among staff nurses in selected hospitals, Tumkur


Pre-experimental, one group pre-test post-test design was adopted for this study. 50 staff Nurses working in selected hospitals, Tumkur were selected for this study. A pretest was conducted by using structured knowledge questionnaire and on the same day the Self instructional module regarding cord blood banking was administered to them. After 7 days, post test was conducted with the same questionnaire for the same group of staff Nurses to assess the effectiveness of SIM.
