Introduction: Emotional intelligence (EI) is defined as “the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships”. The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of video-based scenarios on knowledge and attitude regarding EI among final year B.Sc. (Nursing) students in a selected Nursing College at Puducherry. Materials and methods: Quantitative research approach was adopted for the study. The pre-experimental research design was used. In total, 80 final year B.Sc. (Nursing) students participated in the study based on the inclusion criteria. The data were collected using structured questionnaire to assess the knowledge and attitude. A pre-test following by video-based scenarios that covered the different aspects of the EI such as self-awareness, self-management, motivation, empathy, and relationship management were displayed. After 7 days, post-test was done to assess the knowledge and attitude. The data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Result: The results revealed that the video-based scenario was effective in improving the level of knowledge and attitude, and the Wilcoxon signed-rank test was significant at p < 0.001 for all variables. In knowledge, the mean value of pre-test was 8.26, and post-test was 12.26, with a standard deviation of 1.87 and 1.73, respectively. In attitude, the mean value of pre-test was 23.12, and post-test was 35.95, with a standard deviation of 2.75 and 6.31, respectively. Conclusion: The study suggests that training on EI is essential to establish good human relations, and also helps individuals to cope personally and professionally.
