A one-step hybrid method is developed for the numerical approximation of second order initial value problems of ordinary differential equations by interpolation and collocation at nonstop and step points respectively. The method is zero stable and consistent with very small error term. Numerical experiment of the method on sample problem shows that the method is more efficient and accurate than the results obtained from our earlier methods.
