Quantitative Pre experimental approach was used with one group pre test post test design. The investigator used convenient sampling technique for selecting 40 samples. A structured knowledge questionnaire and structured observational checklist were prepared to assess the knowledge and practice of the samples. The reliability of the structured knowledge questionnaire was determined by test retest method and observational checklist was determined by inter observer method 'by using karl pearson's correlation co-efficient formula’. Descriptive and inferential statistics was used to analyze the data. Significance of the difference between pre test and post test knowledge and practice was statistically tested using paired t test and it was found significant at 0.05 level. There was significant increase in the knowledge and practice of the staff nurses after the administration of the planned teaching programme on selected neurological assessment. Hence it was concluded that planned teaching programme was effective in improving the knowledge and practice of staff nurses working in intensive care units of selected hospitals of Ahmedabad city, Gujarat state. The association between the pre test score and demographic variables was tested using the chi-square test.
