Breast pain due to nipple sore is one of the most common complaints that health care provider encounters in breast feeding mothers. The causes of nipple sores are mainly due to improper techniques of breast feeding, poor breast hygiene and timing of breast feeding. The aim of the study is to evaluate effectiveness of Planned Teaching Programme on knowledge regarding prevention of nipple sore among postnatal mothers. A pre-experimental research design with purposive sampling and one group pretest post-test was used for the study. The data was collected utilizing a structured knowledge interview. On the first day pretest was taken and Planned Teaching Programme was administered to the group. Post-testwas taken after 5 days. Data was compiled and analysed by using Range, mean, median, standard deviation, paired t test and chi square and it was presented through tables and figures. It was found that more than half i.e. 72% postnatal mothers were having average knowledge and 28% were having poor knowledge. Effectiveness of Planned Teaching Programme was evaluated and it was found effective as after this intervention none of the postnatal mother had poor knowledge score and 26% mother had good knowledge sore and 74% had average score. The calculated value of paired ‘t’ test (19.88) is more than table value (2.01).
