Background: Bronchoscopy procedure applied as a useful tool for diagnostic as well as therapeutic purposes in modern medical practices. A nurse working in the procedure area has a unique responsibility for the preparation and assisting in the procedure. It is the basic responsibility of the nurse to monitor patient’s pre and post-procedure. For safe and low risk complications during or after procedure physicians and nurses to be trained on it. Methods: In this retrospective analysis, pre-test and post-test data of 40 Nurses who joined in service training were evaluated; Data were collected during the weekly in service training program. Data from 01.09.2021 to 30.11.2021 were used for the analysis of this study.

Result: Pre-test mean knowledge score of subjects was 23.3 standard deviation was 6.95, when participant's knowledge was checked before the training program 20% (8) subjects had inadequate knowledge, 50% (20) had moderate knowledge, 30% (12) had adequate knowledge. Posttest mean knowledge score was 30.95 and the standard deviation was 5.19, after the in-service training program, 88% (31) had an adequate knowledge score and 22% (9) had a moderate level of knowledge score. In the present study, the t value in paired ttest was 7.15 which was higher than the critical value of (df39) 1.68, which presents the effectiveness of the training program. Regarding the association between socio-demographics and knowledge, score association was found between operation theatre experience and clinical experience as a calculated chi-square value 9.85, 9.85 was greater than the critical value 5.99 (df2).

Conclusion: Our study results suggest that we need to change the traditional approach and consider redesigning the bronchoscopy education program. We can say that training and learning should off once technical skills are acquired, but continuous learning with the opportunity for continuous improvement in knowledge and practices required improving practices and possibly intermittent reassessment is also required to organize training.
