Background: cooperative jigsaw learning strategy is a kind of cooperative learning method which has been claimed to minimize the competitiveness in the learning environment by encouraging students for cooperative work. Aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of the utilization cooperative jigsaw learning strategy on maternity nursing students' attitudes and achievements. Research design: A quasi-experimental study was utilized. Sample: A convenient sample of 310 participants recruited from third-year nursing students at the faculty of nursing at Benha University during the course entitled maternal and newborn health nursing in the academic year 2018-2019. Those students were divided into two groups, control group (160) "lecture group" and study group (150) "jigsaw group". Tools of data collection; 1) self-administered questionnaire, 2) Learning's achievement tool (before and after intervention), 3) Likert attitude scale, 4) cooperative jigsaw opinion sheet, in addition to supportive material related to jigsaw strategy. Results: there were statistically significant differences between jigsaw and lecture groups regarding learning achievements immediately after intervention as p-value≤0.05, also there were statistically significant differences between both groups in follow up test with p-value≤0.001. Additionally, the students in the jigsaw group exhibited a more positive attitude regarding the jigsaw strategy than the students in the lecture group. Conclusion: The jigsaw learning strategy is effective in enhancing maternity nursing students' attitudes and achievements during maternal and newborn health nursing course. Recommendations: Apply cooperative jigsaw learning strategy as a teaching method in nursing student curriculums. Further research is still needed to study the effect of jigsaw learning strategy on clinical achievement.
