Data was collected using structured questionnaire. Research Approach was used as experimental research approach and Research Design was pre-test and post-test control group design. The conceptual framework used for the present study is "general system model". Total sample size was 30 and selected by non probability purposive sample technique. inclusion criteria: 1. Second year Basic B. Sc. nursing students in selected nursing college 2. Second year Basic B. Sc. nursing students who are willing to participate in the study. Based on the objectives and the hypothesis the data were analyzed and by using various statistical tests i.e. frequencies, percentage, mean, chi square and standard deviations 't' test. Data analysis was done by using descriptive and inferential statistics. The 't' value obtained was 19.46which accepted the research hypothesis suggesting that the structured teaching was effective in increasing the knowledge of nursing students on pneumonia. The finding of the study showed that, the mean pretest score was 14.53 with the standard deviation 3.40, whereas in post test the mean score was 22.73, with the standard deviation 3.11, the mean difference pretest and post test score was 8.20, the calculated t-value was 19.46 it shows that calculated 't' value. The table value is smaller than calculated value so, there was the significant improvement in knowledge regarding study related to pneumonia among the selected students. Hence the H1 is accepted.
