The findings shows that overall mean score in pre–test was 10.9 and in post–test was 19.7 and overall mean difference was 8.8. Regarding the overall mean knowledge score the ‘t’ value was 2.478, the ‘p’ value was p>0.05, which shows that highly significant. Hence the research hypothesis was accepted at  0.05 level of significance.
