During the physiological process of labor, from the uterus the fetus, membranes, umbilical cord, and placenta are expelled out. Background: The successful practice of tracking the learning activities based on the research literature is the fundamental component of high quality education. Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of the recapitulation of stages of labor (ROSOL) model on learning ability of final-year BSc nursing students. Materials and methods: The research approach was quantitative and one-group pretest—posttest preexperimental research design. A total of 90 students from BSc nursing final year, Kasturba Gandhi Nursing College, Puducherry, was selected by the purposive sampling technique. The pretest level of knowledge was assessed by a structured knowledge questionnaire and the ROSOL model was issued to the students. After 7 days, the posttest level of knowledge was assessed by using same structured knowledge questionnaires. Descriptive and inferential statistics like frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and the Wilcoxon signed-rank test were used for analyzing the data. Results: In pretest, 40 (44.4%) had inadequate knowledge, 48 (53.3%) had moderately adequate knowledge, and 2 (2.2%) had adequate knowledge. In posttest, 1 had inadequate and moderately adequate knowledge and 90 (100%) had adequate knowledge. The mean value was 9.81 and 17.68 during pre- and posttest, respectively. The median value was 10 and 18 during pre- and posttest, respectively. The obtained Wilcoxon signed-rank test value was 8.265. The improvement of knowledge was assessed using the paired t-test; it was found statistically significant at p < 0.001 level. Conclusion: The ROSOL model was effective in improving the learning ability among final-year BSc nursing students.
