Arts, Humanities, Commerce students can also study nursing course
New Delhi: Students who complete Plus Two in Arts, Humanities and Commerce streams also will be able to join BSc Nursing course. This has been suggested in the draft of the revised syllabus of BSc Nursing issued by Indian Nursing Council.
At present, only those who study Science stream with biology are allowed admission in the four-year BSc Nursing course. Feedback and complaints can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org till January 24.
The Nursing Council recommended the change soon after it decided to stop the three-year General Nursing and Midwifery Course by 2021. According to the draft of revised syllabus for 2020-21 academic year, those who study commerce, humanities and arts also can apply for the course.
The applicants should have total 45 percent marks for the elective subjects in Plus Two exam conducted by CBSE, ICSE, SSCE, HSCE and AISSCE. Also they should obtain pass mark in English subject.
Those who qualify the Plus Two exam conducted by the National Institute of Open School and State Open School also are eligible. Vocational ANM/RANM students also can apply. They should have 50 percent marks in the entrance conducted by the university or state government.
