The ‘t’ value -16.84 was statistically significant at p< 0.001. The mean score of level of attitude in the control group was 67.96± 16.33 and the mean score in the experimental group was 86.33± 12.80 respectively. The ‘t’ value -6.854 was statistically significant at p< 0.001. The mean score of level of practice in the control group was 52.61± 12.01 and the mean score in the experimental group was 82.25± 13.93 respectively.
