The findings of the study are, In the pre test, out of 60 samples 4 (6.66 %) had moderate knowledge regarding maintenance of sleep pattern and 56 (93.3 %) had inadequate knowledge regarding maintenance of sleep pattern. In the post test, majority of the samples had adequate knowledge regarding maintenance of sleep pattern. About 50 (83.3 %) had adequate knowledge and 10 (16.6 %) had moderate knowledge.
