Global interprofessional therapeutic-communication scale (GITCS) was used to collect the data regarding the language and therapeutic-communication issues among the participants. Data was analyze by descript and inferential statistics.
Result: The study resulted that out of 360 students of B.Sc. Nursing and GNM students maximum 98.9% (356) were 18 to 24 years of age and 92.8% (334) were female. According to State wise distribution it shows that majority of participants were belongs from Odisha 65.6% (236) and 32.2% (116) participants were from west Bengal. The majority of samples were B.Sc. students that is 64.2% (231) and maximum 32.8% (118) students were in 2nd year, whereas 27% (98) students were in 1st year, 23% students were in 4th year and minimum 17% students were in 3rd year. The Present study reported that majority of students 35%(126) had average, 34.72% (125) had poor, 11.11% (40) good, 15.28%(55) and 3.89%( 14) had excellent therapeutic-communication skill.
