Background: Medication safety during administration is a major concern at a global level. Nurses are responsible for administration of HAMs, as incorrect administration can have a significant clinical outcome. The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of web quest on high alert medications among nursing students. Methods and Materials: A true experimental research was conducted at Apollo College of Nursing, Chennai, among 100 nursing students selected by total enumerative sampling technique and randomized to control and experimental group (50 in each group) by odd and even method. After obtaining the setting permission and informed consent from participants, data was collected using pretested and validated tools such as background variables proforma of nursing students and multiple choice questionnaire on high alert through Google forms in what’s app and e- mails. The data regarding background variables and pre-test assessment of knowledge on high alert medicationswas obtainedon day 1. Then post test was conducted for the control group on day 3.On day 4, web-quest on high alert medicationswas implemented for the experimental group. On day 5 post-test assessment was conducted for the experimental group. The collected data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: There was a significant difference in post-test mean knowledge scores on high alert medications between control (10.86±4.73) and experiment group (18.97±2.17) of nursing students (t=10.29 at p < 0.001). Conclusion: The present study reveals that web quest is considered as a suitable method to improve the level of knowledge among nursing students.
