Effect of nurse led-training on knowledge of birth preparedness and complications readiness among pregnant women has created much more concerns than ever before. Quasi-experimental research design was employed to assess effect of nurse-led training on knowledge of birth preparedness and complication readiness among 412 pregnant women in selected primary health centers, Lagos state. Nigeria. Multi-stage sampling procedure was used to select 412 pregnant women in selected primary health centers, Lagos state. Nigeria. Adapted instrument was administered to obtain information on relevant issues. Data was analysed using Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS 23.0). Result showed that the intervention of nurse led-training on complications readiness among pregnant women attending antenatal clinic had significant effect on readiness and available of birth materials (p<0.05), conversant with place of birth (p<0.05); recognition of skilled birth attendant (p<0.05); recognition of danger signs in pregnancy (p<0.05); saving money for delivery and emergence (p<0.05); provision for means of transportation (p<0.05). Result also revealed a notable difference between pre-intervention and post-intervention mean scores of knowledge regarding birth preparedness and complication readiness. This indicates that the nurse-led training successfully enhanced the understanding and awareness of pregnant women in these areas. It was recommended that there is need to implement evidence-based, interactive nurse-led training programs tailored to pregnant women’s socio-demographic characteristics, focusing on birth preparedness, complication readiness, and maternal healthcare.
