Abstract:

Background: Effective time management is typically the practice of allocating time to complete learning tasks in a way that is suitable and varies gradually throughout the course of the learning process. Among nursing students, this is typically associated with improved academic achievement. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of a time management educational program on nursing students' academic achievement levels. 
Methods: Using an experimental design, the study was carried out at King Khalid University's College of Nursing, ABHA, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In the academic year 2023/2024, all 86 nursing students enrolled in the communication skills and health education course were randomly split into two equal groups: the experimental and control groups. Two tools were used for data collection: Time Management Inventory and Students 'achievement test. 
Results: The results of the study show that, in terms of overall self-report time management skills, there was a very significant difference between the experimental and control groups in the post program implementation (t=2.52, Sig=0. 001**). In this instance, the experimental group gotten the highest mean score compared to the control group (mean values of 57.43±7.54 and 51.02 ±4.80, respectively). Furthermore, a statistically significant difference in academic achievement levels was seen between the experimental and control groups (chi square = 298.07, Sig = 0.001*). 
Conclusion and Recommendation: In comparison to the nursing students in the control group, it was found that the time management educational program significantly improved the academic achievement and time management skills of the experimental group of nursing students. Thus, at the start of the academic year, nursing students should attend several courses or training workshops regarding time management skills. These classes may help students overcome their uncertainties and introduce them to the ideas of goal-setting, planning, and time management.
