descriptive survey was conducted to identify the impact of skills training on knowledge and practice regarding active management of third stage of labor among staff nurses in selected hospitals, West Bengal. The objectives of the study were to assess the knowledge level on AMTSL among staff nurses, to identify the practices on AMTSL, to determine relationship between knowledge and practices on AMTSL, to find out the association between knowledge and selected demographic variables and to find out association between practices and selected demographic variables. The variables were knowledge and the practice of AMTSL. Conceptual framework was based on L. Von Bertalanffy’s General System’s Model (input, process and output). Descriptive survey design was adopted to collect data from 50 staff nurses by purposive sampling technique with the help of structured questionnaire and observation checklist. The findings indicate that 68% staff nurses had fair knowledge regarding AMTSL, 14% had good knowledge, 72% of staff nurses had fair practice scores, 18% had good practice scores; practices after delivery of placenta was the best area during delivery. The correlational analysis suggests that knowledge was positively correlated with practices (r=0.09) among staff nurses, which signifies that practice of AMTSL is dependent on knowledge of staff nurses. The result revealed that there was significant association between practice and age of staff nurses [χ² df (1) =4.1; p<0.05]. Considering the findings, some recommendations were made for future research such as the study can be replicated on large sample size. Based on the present study findings it was found that the knowledge and practices of staff nurses regarding AMTSL were fair.
