After pretest, the educational program including lecture, group discussion and pamphlet was performed and after three weeks, Post test was given. Using Software SPSS-­15, the data was analyzed by applying descriptive and inferential statistics.

  Results: There is a significant difference (P<0.000) between the nurses' general knowledge ­(7.51± 3.17) and general attitude (8.35±­5.22)­.­ The general knowledge and attitude of control groups are not different between first and second time of recording.
