Cord care serves as a major determinant of the neonate’s morbidity or mortality within the first month of life. This study therefore examined the nursing intervention on knowledge of cord care among mothers attending two selected Primary Health Centers in Owo local government area of Ondo State. This study adopted two groups pre-test – post-test quasi-experimental design to assess the effect of training on mothers attending immunization clinics in two selected health centres in Owo Local Government Area on the knowledge of cord care. Total enumeration approach was considered to select 84 mothers in two Primary Health Centres. A self-administered questionnaire was used. Data collected were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study revealed that the pre-intervention knowledge mean score of participants on cord care among mothers in both the control (48.4%) and experimental (47.6%) groups are below average. The findings further revealed that the post-intervention knowledge mean score in the experimental group 19.01 (90.50%) is better than that of the control group 10.69 (50.9%) Also, no significant differences were found in the pre intervention knowledge (Mean difference = 0.17, t(82) = 1.287, p = .236) mean scores of participants on the cord care in the control and experimental group. Significant differences were reported in the post intervention mean score on knowledge (Mean diff. = 8.32, t(82) = 5.286, p = .000) of cord care in the control and experimental group. It was recommended among others that health care providers in the community health facilities should continue to create awareness on standard protocol for umbilical cord care.
