Concept mapping (CM) is an innovative educational strategy that promotes meaningful learning. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme regarding the use of CM as a learning strategy on knowledge, psychiatric care plan presentation and satisfaction among B.Sc nursing 3rd-year students of selected nursing colleges in Raipur, Chhattisgarh. A pre-experimental (one group pre-test and post-test), evaluative research approach was used to achieve the objectives of the study on 60 B.Sc nursing 3rd-year students using a purposive sampling method. The findings revealed that 60 (100%) of them improved on the pre-test scores in terms of their conceptual understanding in the post-test with a mean score of 8.9 (standard deviation [SD] = 1.2) with 't' = 35.15 which is highly significant at 0.00001 level. The assessment of satisfaction regarding CM revealed that 60 (100%) students were highly satisfied with CM as a learning strategy with a mean score of 54.4 (SD = 3.6) and 't' = 27.68 which is highly significant at the 0.00001 level. The coefficient of correlation between post-test knowledge and satisfaction scores was found to be r = −0.01 at P > 0.05 (P = 0.93). The coefficient of correlation between post-test psychiatric care plan and satisfaction scores was found to be 0.4 at P < 0.05 (P = 0.001).
