Introduction: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation quality is an important determinant of cardiac arrest outcome. Research objectives: The study aimed to investigate the Effects of Providing Knowledge and Skills for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation of Nursing Students, Boromarajonani College of Nursing, Bangkok. Research methodology: This quasi-experimental study was one-group pretest-posttest design. The study samples from 50 people each year, a total of 150 people the 1st to 3rd year nursing students at Boromarajonani College of Nursing, Bangkok for the year 2018 academic year, who have never received Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training were randomly assigned into the experimental groups. The experimental group were received training activities of providing knowledge and skills for CPR such as lecture, demonstration and return demonstration and focus group. The instruments used for data collection including the CPR knowledge examination of multiple choice, and the CPR skill checklist. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and mean scores of knowledge and skills of CPR were compared by using the t-test for dependent. Results: The results of study were as followed:1.Mean score of knowledge related to CPR of the experimental group after receiving the training activities ( =15.89, SD=1.78) was higher than before the experiment ( =13.80, SD=2.35) with statistical significance at .000 (t = 10.12, p<.001); 2.Mean score on CPR skill of the experimental group after receiving the training activities ( =6.58, SD=2.33) was greater than before the experiment ( =1.74, SD=2.02) with statistical significance at .000 (t = 20.24, p =.000) and effective of Chest compression after receiving the training activities ( =63.21, SD=16.70) was greater than before the experiment ( =49.30, SD=14.20) with statistical significance at .000 (t = 7.47, p<.001) Conclusions: Based on the study findings, it could be concluded that the providing knowledge and skills for cardiopulmonary resuscitation could increase knowledge and skills of CPR for nursing students. Implications: Therefore, the training activities of CPR should be continuously implemented on a yearly basis and should be expanded to other groups of college of nursing students and general public.
