They are defined as a seizure accompanied by a fever of at least 100.4°F (38°C) without central nervous system infection. However, the misconception and poor knowledge of this condition could result in certain harmful home management of the condition. children within the age for febrile seizure spend most of their daytime hours with their mothers, this implies that a seizure of child may likely be first attended to by the mother, thus adequate knowledge by the mothers is important.

Aim: This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of educational package on the level of knowledge among mother of children with febrile seizure.

Methodology: A Quasi experimental design used to assess the effectiveness of educational package regarding prevention and management of febrile seizure. Non-probability convenience sampling technique was adopted to select 60 samples which was equally divided into control (30) and experimental (30) group. Pretest was conducted to both groups followed by implementation of educational package to experimental group along with routine nursing care and only routine nursing care to control group. Level of knowledge was assessed after 5 days.

Result: The analysis of the study reveals that the majority of samples belonged to the age of the mother (16) (53.3%) between 20 and 30 years in the experimental group. The majority of samples from the experiment belong to middle education (43.3%). In both groups, the majority of samples were housewives (63.3%). Regarding religion, Hindu belong to 24 (80%) of the sample. The monthly income ratios for families range from 10,000 to 15,000/- (50%). In the experimental group, the age of the child is 1-3 years (46.7%). In the experimental group, the pretest and posttest levels of knowledge mean score with standard deviation were 3.27±2.83, 14.4±2.42. In the control group, the pretest and posttest mean score with standard deviation were 3.13±2.89, 23±2.85. The obtained t-value of experimental and control group of posttest knowledge scores was t- 16.37, at p < 0.001, which were highly significant at the 0.05 level of significance. Age of mother and religion were associated with knowledge scores of mothers at 0.05 level of significance.
Conclusion: The result showed that there was a significant increase in the level of knowledge among the mothers in the experimental group after the administration of the educational package intervention.
