Material and Methods: The quasi-experimental study was conducted from July to December 2021 at Ziauddin University Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, Karachi, among 60 students of 4th year BSN, approached by non-probability consecutive sampling method.  The willing students of BSN year VI were included. The participants were divided into A and B groups. Group A was interventional, and group B was non-interventional. Independent t-test, Mann-Whitney U test, and Fisher exact test were applied for inferential statistics.


Results: The majority, 80% of the participants, were female, and almost half, 31 (51.67%) study participants were between 23-26 years. The average score of the participants through jigsaw cooperative learning and lecture method was18.73±3.5 and 14.13±2.42, respectively. Moreover, it was also found to be statistically significant (p-value<0.001).


Conclusion: It is concluded that the jigsaw cooperative learning strategy was found effective as compared to the traditional teaching style. To increase the quality of education in the health sectors, the educational system must accept and apply modern interactive technologies.
