Infants can be considered children anywhere from birth to 1 year old. We cant avoid medicines to prevent or cure diseases for the infants. The most of the immunizations are given in the form of IM. It would cause severe pain to the infants. The helfer technique is one of the best methods to reduce pain. Therefore, the nurse should have knowledge on this. A one group pretest and posttest design was used to assess the knowledge level. The present study was conducted in SCPM hospital at Gonda.50 nurses were selected for this study. Non-probability convenient sampling was used. Socio Demographic data and questionnaire on knowledge related to helfer skin tap technique was used to collect the data. The final format of the structured questionnaire comprises of two parts. In the pretest only 3 (5 %) samples were having adequate knowledge but after structured teaching programme it reached to maximum 55 (91.7 %) samples were having adequate knowledge. There is significant difference between pretest and posttest knowledge scores as the t value is higher than the tabulated value in the p value 0.05 level of significance. The chi-square table explains that there is a significant association between socio demographic variables such as Education and Source of information with the pretest knowledge regarding helfer technique among nurses as the chi-square value is higher than the tabulated value at 0.05 level of significance.
