Phase 4: Conduct of assertiveness training program to nursing ward supervisors and Phase 5: Post-assessment and evaluation of the assertiveness training program. Twenty-seven female nursing ward supervisors within the age group 44-49 years (mean age: 44.0 ± 4.59 years) with a diploma in General Nursing and working in a supervisory capacity for a minimum period of 5 years or more were chosen for the study. Nurses who had undergone any type of ward administration training or assertiveness training during last one-year were excluded from the study. Single group design with pre and post-assessment was adopted. Twenty-seven subjects were assessed on a scale developed by the researcher to assess the degree of assertiveness. The subjects were divided into three groups comprising of 9 members each. Each group was provided with 8 sessions (2 sessions/week) of assertiveness training of approximately one-hour duration. Results showed significant differences between pre and post-test scores of various domains of assertiveness following the training program, indicating the effectiveness of the assertiveness training program.
