A survey questionnaire was distributed to two population convenient sample of nurses; one group at a university teaching hospital, and the other at a post-basic institution of higher learning. The respondents stated that many of them knew quite a bit about HIV/AIDS, but only a few affirmed that they were taught in formal classroom setting. In addition, many of the nurses were able to identify the HIV as the culprit responsible for the infection that leads to AIDS. The sources of information about HIV/AIDS ranged from the radio, television, newspapers, journals and magazines, to such things and places likes bill boards, and among others, the music and theater industries in the country. The nurses also attributed the spread of HIV/AIDS to promiscuous teenage girls predominantly, as well as older men due to infidelity. Many of the nurses stated that sex education should be given to children as young as five years old, and as old as sixteen years of age. It is recommended that curricular infusion should be done to incorporate HIV/AIDS education in nursing schools in south-western Nigeria.
