Bandage is a middle French word from the old French in which bender means ’to bind’ and bande means ‘a strip’ It is an essential part of the medical and paramedical practice. However this aspect of the training of doctors and nurses is often neglected and they are often unable to apply bandages that will remain undisturbed at least until the next day. Trying bandages is also important for ambulance crew and anyone who gives first aid.
The objectives of the study were to assess the practice skill of bandaging among nursing students.
In this quantitative approach, a exploratory (Observational study) Design was used for 60 samples using stratified random sampling (lottery method) technique. An Observation checklist was prepared to assess the knowledge and practice skills to collect the data.
The data was analysed by using descriptive and inferential statistics for assessing adequate and inadequate practice skills of nursing students on bandaging which shows that 75% students have adequate practice skills and rest 25% having inadequate skills of bandaging. The study emphasized enhancement regarding practice skills of bandaging. Conclusion: It can therefore be concluded that practice of bandaging is effective in improving the skills and accuracy among nursing students.
