Data was collected using 44 structured knowledge questionnaires before administering the video assisted teaching and after. The post test was conducted 7 days after administering the intervention. The collected data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, results obtained were discussed and analyzed in terms of objectives and hypothesis. Results: the demographic variables were analyzed for their frequency and percentage. female students were 81.7% (49) male were 18.3 % (11), according to age 18-19myears were 35 % (21), 20-21 years were 51.7% (31) and a small group of 13.3% (8) of 22-23 years. Looking at education the distribution is equal 33.3 % (20) from the three years of BSc nursing (IInd, IIIrd, final year).
