Abstract

Most of the classes delivered in the present classroom seem to utilize lecture cum discussion as the major form of teaching learning for the rising number of students in a classroom. Nursing being a practicing profession requires ample amount of demonstration by the clinical instructors for effective nursing care but demonstration alone by the teacher may pause unfairness due to inequality in the instruction. Hence the researcher thought learning through video for drug administration would improve the students’ skills by repeated presentation and practice to attain confidence and ultimately reduce medication errors within this changing environment besides the usual lecture cum discussion. Findings showed that the mean pre-test knowledge score (32.67) of the control group is higher than the experimental group (31.83). The mean post-test knowledge score (50.05) of the experimental group after the competency programme on drug administration using Active Lecture cum Video were apparently higher than the control group ( 45). Hence the competency programme on drug administration using Active Lecture cum Video (ALV) proved to be more effective than Active Lecture cum Live Demonstration (ALLD). Yet the researcher was much more inquisitive about the opinions the students hold relating to learning pharmacology a subject that they fear most. As a result the students had brought forth various positive and negative feedback for the investigator to review and bring about changes in the curricular activities.
