The teaching tools and strategies are based on their educational philosophy, pedagogy, classroom demography, subject area and the institute's mission statement. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of fish bone diagram as a teaching tool among nursing students in a selected college of nursing. The participants were selected using purposive sampling technique and data was collected from 90 undergraduate nursing students using structured knowledge questionnaire. The data were statistically analyzed and the results revealed that there was significant difference in the mean knowledge scores of nursing students towards regarding laboratory investigations and normal values at (p<0.001). Majority of the nursing students (100%) had inadequate knowledge in pretest but 70% had adequate knowledge in post test. This article proposes the applicability of fish bone diagram as a teaching tool for laboratory investigations and normal values, thereby creating newer strategies in nursing education.
