It is crystal clear that INC has an idea to permit the students who took “Commerce/Arts” as their optional subjects in +2 to Study Nursing. 

Many Nurse Educators feel  ” This is really a strange decision to compare the students who studied Science subject (Physics/Chemistry/Biology) with other Non-Science Subjects (Arts/Commerce). Both the subjects, mental ideas, ability of the Students are totally different. So it is not a good decision to go ahead. Because, the students who joins in nursing without a basic knowledge of subjects Physics/Chemistry/Biology has so many struggles to understand the basics of anatomy, physiology, bio-chemistry etc. They become depressed of the inability to understand the standard subjects and may discontinue nursing or shows a poor passing rate. Hence It is not a goo decision to go ahead.

Already, INC has permitted the students who studied arts/commerce in +2 to do DGNM Programme. Outcome of this decision is very poor because of the earlier points. Hence INC should reconsider the decision of permitting those who did arts/commerce in +2 to Study Nursing” they said.

Many Nurses all over India feels ” It is not a fair decision to include them in Nursing. Nursing is a vital study in the health sector which deals with the life of Humans. we must be serious about this” they said.

Medical Council of India will not permit Arts/Commerce Students to join M.B.B.S

Pharmacy Council of India will not permit Arts/Commerce Students to join B.Pharm

Physiotherapist council of India will not permit Arts/Commerce Students to join B.P.T

But Indian Nursing Council?

The he decision of Indian Nursing council makes Nurses hurt. Hence Throughout India Nurses put a request to reconsider the decision of inclusion of arts/commerce students in nursing.  This request is not to hurt to the students who studied arts/commerce but to maintain the Integrity, Dignity of Nursing Profession, a Stern decision must be taken.

Hence All Nursing Students/Nurses/Nurse Educators throughout india and abroad are requested to share Your Opinions and Suggestions using below Survey Form. Let it Reach to more than a Lakh entries about the decision of INC. The entries will be sent to the INC for further action.

  1. Plss dont do this …..lots of students are suffered alot to study nursing ….in science group…but in arts and science groupnot like tat…if u do tat it will not become a valuable course

  2. Professional course has its own esteem and individuality each Group has its own individuality if needed the ward must have taken an Biology in their +1 standard and have tried for it, its not logic and relevant to permit an arts Group person to do Nursing , its a threat to all and surely the standardisation falls….

    1. Without a basic knowledge in science we can’t take Nursing subjectand also the new students are the suffers so plz take into consideration.

  3. Without proper basement you can built a strong building.. Same thing here also. Please think and create talented nurses in india… Make difference in indian health care…

  5. Already nurses are struggling to survive if u admit all group quality of nursing is big question and it’s very difficult to nursing lecture to teach them with out knowing science
    So it should be strictly avoid

  6. All that glitters is not Gold……
    Without learning alphabets one cannot learn to read. In the same way, without science foundation in higher secondary one may find it difficult to practice Nursing.

  7. It’s should not be happen… already who are studying GNM by others subjects for them only it’s too much pressure…BSC course….those we students of science group we are only suffering lots the manage it’s… nursing is a professional courses where it’s should have some values…. which deccesion has taken its should not happen…plssss

  8. I’m kindly requested to all authorities of INC please don’t do like bcz we know how much struggle we want to do for nursing it doesn’t matter who is studying science group and who are not even though everyone want to do struggle during study time and after finishing the course also, now a days so many are suffering if u do that then whole life(till death) we (nurse) will suffer. ….

    It is ridiculous. It is very difficult to understand the basics for those students Who came from science group, especially for non English medium students. In this, if you give chance for non science group students, the quality of nursing will go down.

    The person who is completed anm and PhD, are equally treated as nurse. The image of the nurses goes down due to non nursing staffs, and they call them as nurse.

    Better not to include the arts and Commerce group students in nursing.

    It is a professional course, please don’t play with the life of humans by adding unqualified people in nursing.

    If the Indian medical council ready to add them for MBBS, we can do..

    Serious issues, seniors please think and do..

  10. How much of +2 science is used in B.Sc Nursing? Is the work of GNM Nurse different from a B.Sc Nurse?

    1. very difficult to understand the basics for those students Who came from science group, especially for non English medium students. In this, if you give chance for non science group students, the quality of nursing will go down.

  13. This is not fare … BSC N has good value dnt spoil it …. pls do take back the decision nd gve justice to nursing professional

  14. This is like fool fox making a decision about lions pray. …… better stop bringing this fools act …. or else make same entry for MBBS too . Nothing is impossible for a student

  15. S.Deepa selavamani
