Introduction: Hospitals are the centre of cure and also the important centre of infectious waste generation and the infectious health care waste is hazardous with the potential risk to spread infection and release high level of unintentionally produced organic pollution. The Goal of the bio medical waste management to manage all the waste in proper way, for that health care personnel and nursing students must to have good knowledge and practice regarding collection, handling, as well as safe disposal of waste. In India, until early 1990s healthcare waste management was a neglected issue after that in 1998 implementation of rule of biomedical waste management and handling. In India, The waste generation rate ranges between 0.5 and 2.0kg/bed/day. In which only about 10-25% of biomedical waste is hazardous and remaining 75-95% is non hazardous and the hazardous part of waste includes chemical, Glassware and microbiological items. This is highly toxic, infectious and can cause a serious threatening condition if not managed in a scientific manner. A major issue related to current bio-medical waste management in many hospitals is that the implementation of Bio waste regulation is unsatisfactory as some hospitals are disposing of waste in a improper and in a inadequate manner. Thus will cause environmental pollution unpleasant smell, growth and multiplication of vectors like insects, rodents, and warms which may lead to the transmission of diseases like cholera, typhoid, hepatitis, and AIDS through injuries from infected syringes and needles Methodology: quantitative research approach was used in study pre experimental; one group pre-test post-test design was selected. The data were collected from 30 student of nursing, who were selected using non probability purposive sampling technique from selected nursing college, Rudrapur, U.S. Nagar. the tool used for the study was structured knowledge questionnaire to assess the knowledge regarding Biomedical waste management. Result: The finding of study revealed that the mean post-test knowledge score (15.5) was significantly greater than the pre-test knowledge score (11.1) of experimental group of students. [t=6.98, p<0.00001]. The result showed that there was significant association between knowledge of student regarding bio-medical waste management and socio demographic variables as the chi square value.
