Nursing students are being identified as a potential risk group for the AIDS spread. Awareness regarding AIDS in this group is crucial for AIDS management and prevention. This cross-sectional study was planned and carried out to assess the awareness of nursing students regarding AIDS and to identify the areas of confusion that might serve as an important target of educational intervention. The study consisted of 204 nursing students selected from Nursing school, Govt. Medical College, Nagpur. The overall knowledge regarding etiology, risk factors, transmission, treatment and prevention of AIDS was confusing among the students. The average knowledge score was estimated to be 17.6 of 28. However, more knowledge was found to be correlated with more positive and fearless attitude towards AIDS patients.
