M as a partial fulfilment of the requirement for degree of Master of Science in Nursing to the Tamilnadu. Dr.M.G.R. Medical University, Chennai during the year 2017-2019. The objectives of the study were, 1. To assess the existing level of knowledge and attitude regarding pubertal changes among the pre adolescent girls aged between 11-12 years in the experimental and control group. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge and attitude regarding pubertal changes among the pre adolescent girls aged between 11-12 years in experimental group. 3. To find out the correlation between post test level of knowledge and attitude regarding pubertal changes among the pre adolescent girls aged between 11-12 years in the experimental and control group. 4. To find out the association between post test level of knowledge and attitude with their selected demographic variables in the experimental and control group. In this study a quasi-experimental research design was adopted. Non probability Purposive sampling technique was used to select each 30 sample in experimental and control group equally. Self-administered structured questionnaire was used to assess the level of knowledge and 3 point likert scale was used to assess the level of attitude. Experimental group received intervention of structured teaching programme. In the experimental group, majority 24 (80%) pre-adolescent girls were 12 years and 6 (20%) pre adolescent girls were of Age. Regarding educational status 10 (33.3%) pre-adolescent girls were in 6th standard 20 (66.7%) pre-adolescent girls were in 7th standard. Regarding Religion,25 (83.3%) pre-adolescent girls were Hindus, 3 (10%) pre-adolescent girls were Muslims and 2 (6.7%) pre-adolescent girls were following other religion. Regarding Type of family,10 (33.3%) pre-adolescent girls were from joint family and 20 (66.7%) pre-adolescent girls were from nuclear family. Regarding Birth order,12 (40%) pre-adolescent girls were having birth order I and 18 (60%) pre-adolescent girls were having birth order II. Regarding Parents education, 10 (33.3%) pre-adolescent girls had done their primary education, 12 (40%) pre-adolescent girls had done their secondary education and 8 (26.7%) pre-adolescent girls had no formal education. Regarding Previous source of information, 10 (33.3%) preadolescent girls obtained the information from family members and friends, 7 (23.3%) pre-adolescent girls obtained the information from books and 13 (43.4%) preadolescent girls said they obtained this information from various other sources. Regarding Place of living, all 30 (100%) pre-adolescents belonged to rural areas. The findings of the study revealed that in the experimental group, in the pre test, 28 (93.3%) pre-adolescents obtained inadequate knowledge and 4 (13.3%) preadolescent obtained moderately adequate knowledge. In the post test, 1 (3.3%) preadolescents obtained inadequate knowledge, 9 (30%) pre-adolescents obtained moderately adequate knowledge and 20 (66.6%) pre-adolescents had obtained adequate knowledge. In case of level of attitude in experimental group, in the pre test, 2 (6.7%) preadolescents had unfavourable attitude and 27 (90.0%) pre-adolescents had moderately favourable attitude and 1 (3.3%) had highly favourable. In the post test, 11 (36.7%) preadolescents had moderately favourable attitude and 19 (63.3%) pre-adolescents had highly favourable attitude. The findings shows that in the experimental group calculated t value for overall knowledge was 13.797, which was highly significant at p<0.0001 level. It can be concluded that structured teaching programme regarding pubertal changes was effective among the pre adolescent girls. The findings shows that in experimental group calculated t value for overall attitude was 8.411, which was highly significant at p<0.0001 level. It can be concluded that structured teaching programme was effective among the pre adolescent girls. The analysis revealed that there was a positive correlation between the overall mean improvement level of knowledge and attitude of the adolescent girls in the experimental group (r =0.919) which was significant at the level of p< 0.01. Hence, there is significant relationship between the overall mean improvement level of knowledge and attitude of pre adolescent girls on pubertal changes among the experimental group. This showed that if the knowledge increased the attitude also improved. In experimental group the obtained χ2 values computed that there was a significant association between religion and occupation of parents and there was no significant association between the level of knowledge regarding pubertal changes and their demographic variables. In experimental group the obtained χ2 values computed that there was no significant association between the level of attitude regarding pubertal changes and their demographic variables.
