Background: Pregnancy is a creative and productive period in the life of a woman. It is one of the vital events, which needs special care from conception to postnatal period. The joyful experience of the pregnancy is not always joyful. The objective of prenatal care is to assure that every pregnancy culminates in the delivery of a healthy baby without impairing the health of the mother. It is also focused to prevent or detect at the earliest and to treat any untoward complications that may arise during pregnancy. Most women pass through the period with specific assessment, supportive measures and encouragement. Life threatening conditions place the woman and fetus at risk for significant mortality and morbidity Objectives: To develop and validate a video teaching programme on antenatal examination and to find the effectiveness of video teaching over lecture cum demonstration on antenatal examination for the third year nursing students. Materials and methods: From the 94 third year B.Sc. nursing students 60 students were selected randomly. They were again randomly selected in to experimental (n=30) and control (30) groups respectively. Results and conclusions: Administration of video to the experimental group (n=30) and lecture cum demonstration to the control (n=30) revealed that there was significant difference in the pre and post test knowledge scores within experimental and control groups at 0.001 level of significance there was gain in knowledge in all areas in both the groups there was no significant difference in pre and post test knowledge scores between groups. The study has found enough evidence to conclude that video teaching is an effective method of teaching the students.
