Purposive sampling technique was used and data collection was done by using a knowledge questionnaire and observation checklist. Results The pre test, post test I and post test II mean knowledge scores were 12.3 2.2, 18.6 1.2 and 18.2 1.4 respectively. The mean pre test, post test I and post test II skill scores were 38.2 7.3, 74.4 6.7 and 71.7 6.9 respectively. The mean post test knowledge and skills scores at post test I and post test II were significantly higher as compared to the pre test knowledge and skills scores at p<0.000 level of significance.
