In this paper, we introduce an iterative process which converges strongly to a common element of fixed points of pseudo-contractive mapping and solutions of variational inequality problem for monotone mapping. As a consequence, we provide an iteration scheme which converges strongly to a common element of set of fixed points of finite family continuous pseudo-contractive mappings and solutions set of finite family of variational inequality problems for continuous monotone mappings. Our theorems extend and unify most of the results that have been proved for this class of nonlinear mappings.
