The mean difference shows the effectiveness of STP. Therefore, research hypothesis (H1) was accepted. The calculated chi- square value in the age is 1.76,The calculated chi- square value in the educational status of mother is 2.013,The calculated chi- square value in the religion is 74.76,The calculated chi- square value in the area of residence is 1.433, The calculated chi- square value in the type of family is 2.69,The calculated chi- square value in the source of information about PMS is 146.11,The calculated chi- square value in the teaching programme regarding PMS is 12.411,These all findings reveal that there is significant association between socio demographic variables like Religion, Source of information and teaching programme regarding PMS, and its management among female nursing students at 0.05 level of significance.
