Incidence of asthma has considerably increased over last few decades so the present study aims to assess the effectiveness of Bronchial Asthma Education Program on Asthma control among Asthma Patients. A quantitative approach with Pre-Experimental research design was adopted to conduct the study among 30 Bronchial Asthma patients who were selected by Non- probability convenience sampling technique. Semi-structured interview method was used to collect the demographic data and level of knowledge regarding asthma among asthma patients was assessed by structured questionnaire. The Bronchial Asthma education was given with flash card which includes the details which controls Asthma. The results of the study shows that among 30 samples in the experimental group the pretest results reveal, 25(83.34%) had inadequate knowledge, 4(13.33%) had moderately adequate knowledge and 1(3.33%) had good knowledge.Where as in the post test, 20(66.67%) had adequate knowledge and 10(33.33%) had moderately adequate knowledge regarding Bronchial Asthma among asthma patients.
