Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of mortality in India, and the overall survival rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest rarely exceeds 5%.  Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been shown to increase survival for cardiac arrest victims. Nursing students are expected to have an understanding of CPR and the ability to perform the basic skills, completing a course prior to entering the nursing program or beginning their clinical practice. However, studies suggest that skills developed from a CPR course are lost quickly when they are not practiced. So study was carried out with objectives to assess the knowledge of nursing student on CPR, to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching program on CPR among nursing student and to associate the pre-test score with selected demographical variables.
