Objectives: To assess the existing level of knowledge and practice of primi mothers regarding neonatal care. To provide self instructional module regarding neonatal care. To assess the effectiveness of SIM regarding knowledge and practice of primi mothers on neonatal care. To determine the association between pre-test knowledge and practices regarding neonatal care with selected demographic variables. Methodology: The researchers approach adapted for the study was pre-experimental using one group pre test post test. Simple random sampling technique was used to select the sample. 50 primi mothers are included in the study. The obtained data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics and interpreted in terms of objectives and hypothesis of the study. Results: in pre-test highest percentage (62%) of the samples had average knowledge and in post test majority (54%) of primi mothers were having excellent level of knowledge, and in pre-test highest percentage (64%) of the samples had average practice scores and in post-test majority (88%) of primi mother's had good level of practices knowledge Evaluation of the effectiveness of SIM on knowledge and practice regarding new born care shows that the mean post-test knowledge score (22.6) was higher than the mean pre-test knowledge scores (14) suggesti ng that the SIM was effective. Association between pre-test knowledge score and selected demographic variables was found out by using chi square test. The data shows that there was significant association between the per-test knowledge scores and selected demographic variable expect age income Conclusion: The overall finding of the study clearly showed that the self instructional module was significantly effective in improving the knowledge and practice scores of primi mothers regarding newborn care.
