Nursing, medical and other staff welcomed its straightforward approach and use of simple terms to record and communicate their findings; the scale became an integral part of the care of patients with acute brain injury from head trauma, intracranial haemorrhage and many other causes. Objective: To assess the knowledge regarding Glasgow coma scale among the staff nurses in selected hospital. To evaluate the effectiveness of planned teaching program on knowledge of GCS among staff nurses. To find the association between the knowledge regarding GCS with their selected demographic variable. Hypothesis: H0: There will be no significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge regarding GCS at 0.05 level of significant H1: There will be significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge scores on knowledge about GCS at level of significance. Design: Quasi experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used. Participation: 60 samples of staff nurses of Nootan general hospital, visnagar selected using non – probability convenient sampling techniques.
