Hence, it becomes very essential that telemedicine be introduced and implemented in the country. Objectives: 1. Assess the pre-interventional level of knowledge regarding Telemedicine among ANM’s. 2. Assess the post-interventional level of knowledge regarding Telemedicine among ANM’s. 3. Find out the significant difference between pre interventional and post interventional level of knowledge among ANM’s. 4. Associate the pre interventional level of knowledge regarding Telemedicine among ANM’s with their selected demographic variables. Methods: An evaluative approach with Pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used for the study. The sample consists of 50 ANMs were selected by using Non-Probability convenient sampling technique. Structured questionnaires were administered to evaluate the knowledge on Telemedicine before and after introduction of Nurse led Educational Package.
