The study participants were selected by non probability convenient sampling technique. Knowledge of pediatric nurses was assessed by structured questionnaire and practices were assessed by three point scale check list. The study findings revealed that the mean and standard deviation and paired t value on knowledge on care of children on mechanical ventilator in pre test (15.38, 4.23) and post test mean and standard deviation (23.80, 2.61) and t value=17.76. The mean and standard deviation and paired t value on practices on care of children on mechanical ventilator in pre test (40.88, 7.33), in post test (55.30, 2.74) and t value =16.56, there was significant association between age and experience of the nurses with knowledge and practices.
