Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a vital intervention to prevent death associated with cardiac arrest. However, previous studies have indicated deficiencies in Nurses’ knowledge of CPR, although these vary among countries. The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of Nurse-led intervention on knowledge of CPR among nurses and midwives in secondary health care facilities in Oyo state. One group pre-test post-test quasi experimental design was adopted in the study. The population comprised 92 Nurses and midwives from the three secondary healthcare facilities in Saki Oyo state. Cochrane formular was used to determine the sample size while convenience sampling technique was used to draw participants into the sample. The instruments used for data collection were a validated self -designed questionnaire administered to the participants before and after the intervention. Cronbach’s Alpha reliability for the instrument was 0.918. The data collected in the study were subjected to descriptive and inferential statistical analyses. The findings revealed that participants had pre-intervention mean knowledge score of 2.76 as majority (78.3%) displayed high knowledge before the intervention. Post-intervention, the mean knowledge score increased to 3.00. It was also revealed that there was significant difference between pre- and post- intervention CPR knowledge. In conclusion, the study revealed that training in CPR is a powerful tool in improving knowledge of Nurses and midwives. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that regular in-service training and workshop for Nurses and Midwives should be organized by hospital managements for improvement in CPR knowledge.
