Profession based on medical science has always been high on demand as the medical assistance is the need of the hour nowadays. With the growing number of hospitals, the demand for well-trained nurses is on the rise by each passing day or year. Keeping these facts in mind the government is also encouraging education based on nursing.

So, guys here is bit information about the noble profession called NURSING.

Let’s talk about qualification which I understand must be discussed in detail.

Let’s talk about eligibility first; First of all, to complete your course as BSc. Nursing you must pass higher secondary exams i.e. 12 with physics, chemistry and biology as your main subjects and total duration of the course spanned for 3 years.

Military nurses, as its name implies, give their service to the army personnel. Moreover, there are other areas of working as the nurse too, they include an occupational nurse, psychiatric nursing, orthopaedic nursing etc.

Multidimensional Field-:

Well to me, it’s multidimensional field where there are plenty of scopes too. You can get into surgery, intensive care, paediatrics rehabilitation etc. One has to give services on any of the fields mentioned above.

While under public health nursing, candidates have to work in rural and urban health centres run by the private and public sectors. These trainees render their services on general ailments, nutrition and child- care as a nurse.  We have four nursing colleges in Bastar imparting education on nursing.

To be frank, here candidates rather want to become a nurse than a doctor as it gives ample of opportunities to serve the people who are really in need.

I hope the information given above will turn out to be helpful the aspirants.

Good luck!
