Post Basic B.SC. Nursing

Post Basic B.Sc. Nursing (P.B.B.Sc.) is a 2- year undergraduate program pursued for candidates interested in the field of Nursing. Nurses are healthcare professionals who are trained in taking care of patients, treating them, and assisting doctors in treatment and surgery. A qualified RN (Registered Nurse) is capable of administering preventive, promotive, curative, and rehabilitative services to patients and communities at large. Nursing, beyond a profession, is an opportunity to serve and treat patients and is thus directly related to social change and impact. The INC (Indian Nursing Council) is the authorized body that governs all aspects of nursing education in India. The course follows the syllabus prescribed by the INC. The admission process for the course is varied, as various institutes have their very own criteria and processes of admission. Admission to the course is most often based on the candidate’s obtained merit at the 10+2 level and in the GNM course. Also part of the admission process are selection tests (aptitude test, interview, written test, etc.), based on performance in which, candidates are allotted seats.
