New Delhi: Students who complete the Plus Two program in Arts, Humanities and Business will also be able to join the BSc Nursing course. This was suggested in the revised BSc Nursing Curriculum Draft published by the Indian Nursing Council.
At present, only those who study the scientific stream with biology are allowed to be admitted to the four-year nursing course. Comments and complaints can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org until January 24.
The Nursing Council recommended the change shortly after deciding to end the three-year general nursing and midwifery course by 2021. According to the revised draft curriculum for the 2020 academic year- 21, those studying business, humanities, and the arts can also apply for the course.
Applicants must have a total of 45 percent of marks for elective subjects in the Plus Two exam conducted by CBSE, ICSE, SSCE, HSCE and AISSCE. They must also obtain the passing grade in English.
Those who qualify for the Plus Two exam conducted by the National Open School Institute and the State Open School are also eligible. ANM / RANM professional students can also apply. They should have 50 percent of entrance marks conducted by the university or state government.
