Abstract

The study based on a broad framework with input, throughput, output and feedback first presented by
Ludwing Von Bertalanffy. The investigation utilised an evaluative approach. Samples of 50 staff nurses
were collected using random sampling by lottery. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection.
The overall pre-test knowledge mean score was 14.14±1.629. After administration of the self-instructional
module, the post-test mean score increased to 20.56±4.362. The hypothesis H1 expressed that there will be
a considerable distinction between pre-test and post-test information scores of nursing officers regarding
urinary tract infection. The 't ' test was discovered to be more prominent than the table worth. Acquired
worth was (10.353), and table worth was (2.045). It showed the effectiveness of the SIM. The study was
no significant relationship with demographic variables because the chi- square value was less than the table
value. Thus, the H2 has been dismissed.
