Conduct and utilization of research in nursing questionnaires was used for nurseís knowledge regarding Pharmacovigilance and Adverse Drug reaction. Data analysis was done by entering the data on SPSS software. Data analysis was done by entering the data on SPSS (statistical package for social science studies) software version 21. The findings of the study revealed that the majority of participants 11.8% (n=13) have good knowledge regarding pharmacovigilance and adverse drug reaction, 48.2% (n=53) have moderate knowledge and 40.0% (n=44) have poor knowledge. 23.6% (n=26) students have a positive attitude, 50.0% (n=55) students have a moderate attitude and 26.4% (n=29) students have a negative attitude towards Pharmacovigilance and adverse drug reaction. The result of the present study shows that nursing students who participated in this study had insufficient knowledge towards adverse drug reaction and pharmacovigilance and moderate practice level. Due to lack of knowledge there is a barrier in reporting adverse drug reactions. As a result, nursing students' understanding of pharmacovigilance and adverse drug reactions must be expanded.
