Nursing: When a nurse is doing a “job” in taking of a patient she or he is also, doing a subjective, objective, spiritual activity. In order to do that the nurse needs the educational/professional background in order to take care of that patient! Nursing is a profession first and Job Second!!

Where this course will take you: Nurses do not remain unemployed. They easily get jobs in private and government run hospitals, nursing homes, orphanages, old age homes, industries, sanatoriums and the armed forces. They can also seek employment in the Indian Red Cross Society, Indian Nursing Council, State Nursing Councils and various other nursing institutions. Even nurses who have completed the ANM course get to work as primary health workers and midwifes in primary health care centres that are spread throughout the length and breadth of the country.

Nurses can also take up administrative and teaching positions in medical colleges and nursing schools. Enterprising individuals can start their own nursing bureaus or even work on their own terms and conditions.

Apart, from these innumerable openings in the domestic sector, nurses who earn international nursing certifications and fulfill the prescribed immigration criteria generally move to greener pastures abroad.

With the rapid growth in the population coupled with the requirement for better healthcare facilities, there is an unending demand for nurses in the country. However, the supply of nurses greatly falls short of meeting this ever growing demand.

According to a latest study there are approximately 10.3 lakh nurses registered with the Nursing Council. However, only 4 lakh of these nurses are actively in service. A vast majority of them have left service due to retirement, marriage and immigration. In this context, there is a huge gap in demand and supply.

There is great demand for highly skilled nurses abroad. In fact, India has emerged as the largest provider of nurses to foreign countries. The lure of big money and better living conditions abroad often attracts experienced nurses from India. A major reason for the scarcity of nurses in the domestic sector is their flight to foreign lands.
