This quasi-experimental research using two groups (pre-posttest designed) aimed to study effect of earthquake preparation program on knowledge and perceived self-efficacy in earthquake preparation among staffs of Srisavarindhira Thai Red Cross Institute of Nursing. The samples of this study were staff who were working at Srisavarindhira Thai Red Cross Institute of Nursing. The total of 66 samples were recruited in sample random sampling technique. Random assignment was used with matched-pair into two groups of experimental group and control group. Thirty-three staffs in the experimental group received the earthquake preparedness program which developed by the researchers and based on the self-efficacy theory of Bandura (1997). Focus on creating successful experiences to achieve self-efficacy for one day. While the other thirty-three staffs control group received only 30 minute of the video. The research instrument were earthquake knowledge questionnaire and self-efficacy in preparation for earthquake questionnaire. The results revealed that average posttest scores of knowledge and self-efficacy in the experimental group were statistically significant higher than those average pre-test scores at p-value .05. And the average scores of knowledge and self-efficacy in the experimental group were statistically significant higher than average scores of control group at p-value 0.05 This research shows that earthquake preparedness programs can increase knowledge. And their ability to prepare for an earthquake. It may also be used to prepare in other situations.
