CARE Nampally College of Nursing, which has been running the BSc Nursing course since 2006, has started a Post Basic BSc Nursing course in affiliation with CARE Hospitals, Nampally, Hyderabad.
The 2-year Post Basic BSc Nursing course is offered to nurses trained in General Nursing and Midwifery (GNM), allowing them to upgrade their qualification to a BSc Degree. Nurses who have done 10+1 in or before 1986 and completed GNM are also eligible for admission. The course helps them to advance their nursing knowledge and skills and prepares diploma holders to undertake managerial, research and leadership roles of a professional nurse. The graduates would be eligible for managerial positions in public health and clinical areas, nursing teaching jobs as well as for pursuing higher studies or research.
