Self-awareness is considered as the essential aspect of a professional nurse this will lead to competency in provision of high quality nursing care and finally greater satisfaction in client care. A descriptive survey design was adopted. Using non probability convenience sampling 243 nursing students were selected as subjects. Instruments used for collecting the data consisted of Proforma for socio demographic variables, Life Skills Assessment Scale (Only self-awareness dimension was used) developed by Radhakrishnan Nair, Subashree. The results revealed that majority 147 (60.5%) of the nursing students had average level of self-awareness, 55 (22.6%) of students had high level, 23 (9.5%) had very high level and only 18(7.4%) had low level of self-awareness. There was a significant association between self-awareness and sex at p< 0.05 and year of study at the level of p< 0.001. Self-awareness is the foundation skill required for reflective practice as the outcomes from being self-aware underpin whole process. Self-awareness helps in personal success and management.
