PHILOSOPHY

We believe that the world is one family and education is the right of every child of this country. Any level of education should equip the student to be able to gain fruitful employment and also provide an opportunity to continue education whenever possible.

We believe that nursing education must occur in a natural setting that is the clinical and the community setup.

We also believe that education should be flexible enough to promote vertical and horizontal growth and mobility.

We believe that the nurse educator's responsibility lies in providing the right experiences to the student and allowing the students to explore and learn while enjoying her learning experience.

Indian Nursing Council believes that, Health is a state of well-being that enables a person to lead a psychologically, socially and economically productive life.

Nursing contributes to the health services in a vital and significant way in the health care delivery system. It organizes national health goals and is committed to participate in the implementation of National Health policies and programmes. It aims at identifying health needs of the people, planning and providing quality care in collaboration with other health professionals and community groups.

Scope of nursing practice encompasses provision of promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative aspects of care to people across their life span in a wide variety of health care settings. Practice of Nursing is based upon application of basic concepts and principles derived from the physical, biological and behavioural sciences.

Undergraduate nursing programme at the post basic level is a broad based education within an academic framework, which builds upon the skills and competencies acquired at the diploma level. It is specifically directed to the upgrading of critical thinking skills, competencies and standards required for the practice of professional nursing and midwifery as envisaged in National Health Policy 2002.

The teachers have the responsibility to be role models and create learning environment that enables students to acquire inquiry driven, self directed learning and foster an attitude of life long learning.
