The reduction in the high blood pressure of the hypertensive clients has an important role to play in enabling the effectiveness of alternate nostril breathing intervention as an independent nursing intervention. The objective of the study is to assess the effectiveness of alternate nostril breathing on blood pressure among hypertensive clients. The research design adopted was Quasi Experimental design. The conceptual framework for this study was based on modified Ludwig Von Bertalanffys General System Theory. The study has been conducted in Unicare Hospital, Rajkot. Purposive sampling technique has been adopted to select the desired sample. The sample size was 40 (20 under Experimental group and 20 under Control group). As an intervention of 15 days alternate nostril breathing exercise was practiced for experimental group. The data was collected through sphygmomanometer. The collected data were analyzed by using both descriptive and inferential statistical methods. “t” test was used to assess the effectiveness alternate nostril breathing on blood pressure among hypertensive clients. The obtained “t” value for systolic blood pressure was 31.2*** and for diastolic blood pressure was 29.8*** which is greater than tabulated “t” value 3.8 which was highly significant at 0.001.
