INTRODUCTION: Eaching methods are the stimulation, guidance, direction, and encouragement for learning and also the means to achieve the desired educational objectives. AIM: This study aimed to assess peer learning (PL) versus conventional teaching (CT) regarding antenatal assessment in terms of knowledge, skills, and satisfaction among nursing students. METHODS: This was a quasi-experimental study conducted on 51 B.Sc.Nursing 3rd-year students who were selected by convenient sampling and randomly assigned to PL (n = 21) and CT (n = 30) group. Sample characteristics pro forma, structured knowledge questionnaire, observational checklist, and satisfaction rating scale wereused to collect data from nursing students through self-report and observational technique. RESULTS: The study results revealed that the mean posttest knowledge score (19.1 ± 0.75) in PL group was higher than that in CT group (17.0 ± 0.741) and the mean rank skill score of PL group (44.90) was higher than that in the CT group (20.30). There was no significant difference (t = 1.08, P > 0.05) in mean posttest knowledge score, whereas the significant difference was found in posttest skill score (Z = 5.00, P ≤ 0.01) among nursing students. Most of the nursing students were satisfied with the CT method. There was a mild positive correlation (r = 0.25) between knowledge and skills regarding antenatal assessment among nursing students. CONCLUSION: Based on the findings of the study, it can be concluded that both PL and CT groups were found to be equally effective in improving knowledge and skills of nursing students regarding antenatal assessment.
