Abstract

Background: Mobile phones offer convenience and comfort to individuals, yet they also pose a risk in terms of psychological dependence. The term “nomophobia” is a blend of “no mobile phone” and refers to addiction to mobile phones. Objectives: (1) To evaluate the initial understanding of nomophobia and its preventive measures among nursing students through pre-test assessment. (2) To determine the impact of a structured educational intervention on enhancing nursing students’ knowledge regarding nomophobia and its prevention. (3) To investigate the frequency of nomophobia among nursing students (4) To examine the correlation between nursing students’ pre-test knowledge scores and their demographic characteristics. Material and Method: The study employed a Quantitative single-group Pre-test and Post-test experimental research design. A total of 98 nursing students were chosen through a convenient sampling method. Data collection was conducted utilizing a structured questionnaire to assess knowledge. Result: result showed that majority of the nursing students (83.67%) had poor knowledge, (16.33%) had average knowledge, and no one had good knowledge in pre-test. The post knowledge score (87.76%) had good knowledge, (12.24%) had average Knowledge.
