Nursing is one of the noblest professions, which occupies the largest bulk of the health care force. As a science, nursing is based on scientific knowledge which is expanding, ever-changing and diversifying into specialty areas. The horizon has expanded widely with never-ending staff shortage and of course not ignoring the demands “at home”. A nurse’s role in future will undergo rapid changes, especially in the corporatized health care industry.
Kasturba Gandhi Nursing College (KGNC) was established in 2003. Over the years, the institute has developed a unique environment and infrastructure that can deliver education and healthcare services of truly global standards. The institute is committed to improving the standards of nursing education and strives hard to achieve quality in education while ensuring overall development of the students. We also recognize the importance of providing a supportive and stimulative learning environment using innovative teaching and learning strategies and technological advances.
We offer a 4-year B.Sc. Nursing degree course, 2-year Post Basic B.Sc. Nursing course and 2-year Post Graduate (M.Sc. Nursing) programme. Nursing education has moved further in tune with specialization in nursing to a specialty such as Paediatric Nursing, Psychiatric Nursing, Community Health Nursing, Medical-Surgical Nursing, and OBG Nursing. The students enjoy the innovative nursing curriculum and a good clinical learning experience in the multi-specialty parent hospital MGMCRI, showcasing high standards of health care services.
The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has accredited our university Sri Balaji Vidyapeeth to which KGNC is affiliated with ‘A’ grade in 2015, a milestone in the history of KGNC. Our mission is to provide unparalleled standards of nursing and educational service outcomes. Around 1100 graduates have successfully walked out from the portals of KGNC holding the banner high. Our ambassadors almost 100% are placed in different countries spreading the fragrance, divine flame and fame across the globe.
We at KGNC strive to achieve quality in education, ensuring overall development of both professional and personal standards to all the students. Our faculty members continue to grow in stature by expanding clinical and research activities in many important areas and contributing to practice-based research. We continue to build on our history of providing outstanding nursing education and care to the community.
