Effectiveness of Webinar VS App on Care of Newborn in Terms of Knowledge among Nursing Students
The first 28 days of life are the most vulnerable time for a new-born’s survival. The highest risk of dying is during the first month of life in neonates The study was conducted to assess and compare the Knowledge of nursing students regarding Care of Newborn in Webinar and App group: A true experimental study following pre-test post-test design was conducted in Webinar group (n=49) and 50 in App group (n=50), selected randomly by lottery method. Pre-test (Day 1) and post-test (Day1, Day 15, and Day 30) of knowledge was assessed by using a valid and reliable Structured Knowledge Questionnaire. Statistical analysis was done by using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The mean post-test (Day 1) Knowledge score (19.73) in webinar group and mean post-test (Day 1) Knowledge score (21.48) in App group was significantly higher than pre-test knowledge score (15.76 in Webinar Group and 14.80 in App Group) respectively at 0.05 level significance. Place of living showed association with post-test Knowledge score (Day 1) in App group while place of living and previous knowledge regarding care of Newborn showed association with post-test Knowledge score (Day 15) in Webinar group. The study findings concluded that Webinar and App both were equally effective in enhancing the Knowledge of nursing students.
