Osteoporosis is a worldwide health problem affecting more than 200 million people. Female are at high risk for disease because female have lower bone mass and smaller bones than men", adding menopause period lead to intense reduction into estrogen level and lose calcium more rapidly. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of educational nursing intervention about osteoporosis on knowledge of adults. A quasi experimental research design with pre posttest was utilized to achieve the aim of study. The study was conducted at orthopedic outpatient's clinic at Menoufia University Hospital. A purposive sample of 300 adult and their relative attended for orthopedic outpatient clinic were undertaken. An instructional interviewing questionnaire used to assess knowledge about osteoporosis. It consisted of 3 parts: Part one for socio demographic data, Part two for medical history and part three for knowledge about osteoporosis The studied subjects had inadequate knowledge (100%) in the pre educational intervention while after the nursing educational intervention program, three quarters of them were adequately educated, and only 25% were inadequately educated. The educational intervention has a positive effect on adult's knowledge about osteoporosis. Educational intervention about osteoporosis should be held periodically. Educational program should be published through mass media.
