Background: In a developing country such as India, most of the 620 million rural Indians lack access to basic health care facilities. Additionally, according to research from the Indian Institute of Public Opinion, 89% of rural Indian patients must travel more than 8 kilometres to receive basic medical care, and the remaining patients must travel even farther. Nearly 75% of the population of India lives in rural areas. Aims: The study's objectives were to assess the level of knowledge regarding telemedicine among health care workers, evaluate effects of nurse led education programme on knowledge regarding telemedicine among health care. Methods: An evaluation method and a quasi-experimental one group pre-test post-test research design were used to perform the study. A non-probability convenient sampling technique was used to select 108 healthcare workers for the sample. Self-structured knowledge questionnaires were distributed to gauge the level of telemedicine knowledge before and after the introduction of the nurse-led educational programme. To analyse the collected data, descriptive and inferential statistics were health care workers. Result: The pre-test and post-test knowledge scores differed significantly, as shown by the paired t-test value of 37.50. Therefore, a nurse-led educational programme may be a helpful way to improve healthcare workers' understanding of telemedicine, according to statistical inference. Conclusion: The introduction of Nurse Led Educational Program, according to the study's results, significantly improved topic knowledge.
