JAMMU, October 7: Indian Nursing Council (INC), New Delhi, authorized the Aryan Institute of Nursing, Rajpura, near Chandigarh, to launch B Sc Nursing with a membership of 50 seats.
Approval has been given to teach Nursing B course from session 2021-22 under letter number 18-26 / 8714-INC / 15875 of September 6, 2021.
Dr Anshu Kataria, chairman of Aryans Group, said doctors and nurses are on the front lines of the response to COVID-19. Forced to cope with limited staff, hospitals across the country are struggling to provide adequate care for coronavirus patients. According to reports, the net change in post-COVID 2018-2030 employment for healthcare professionals will be around 112 percent, he added.
He added that the nurse-to-population ratio is 1: 670 versus the norm of 1: 300, according to the Department of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW). Keeping in mind, this course has started among the Aryans as the demand for nursing professionals in the post Covid-19 scenario is expected to increase in the coming years, he explained.
