Types of nursing colleges

As I mentioned before, the above list consists of three main types of nursing colleges –

  • Government nursing colleges
  • Private nursing colleges
  • Aided nursing colleges

 

Nursing colleges have been classified on the basis of the body that governs the college. Government colleges, as the name suggests, are managed and funded by the State Government. Private nursing colleges are managed and maintained by private charitable trusts and organizations.

 

Government nursing colleges charge very low tuition fees. Due to this reason, students prefer govt colleges over other types of institutes. Since the Government bears all the expense associated with one such college, it is able to provide subsidized education to its students.

 

Nursing courses

There exists different types of nursing courses in India. These courses can be classified into different types on the basis of factors such as – academic level and course format.

 

Looking from course format’s point of view, nursing courses can be classified into the following types –

  • Diploma
  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • Master’s Degree
  • PG Diploma
  • PG Certificate
  • PhD

 

Looking from academic level’s point of view, nursing courses can be classified into the following types –

  • UG
  • PG
  • Doctoral Degree

 

B.Sc. Nursing is probably the most popular nursing course in India. But there also exists other nursing education programs. Let us take a closer look at some such training programs and courses –

 

ANM: It stands for Auxiliary Nursing and Midwifery. Technically, it is a Diploma course. The course duration is around 2 years.

 

GNM: It stands for General Nursing and Midwifery. Technically, it is a Diploma course. The course duration is around 3.5 years.

M.Sc. Nursing: It is a Master’s Degree course. Students who have completed B.Sc. Nursing or B.Sc. Nursing (PB) are eligible to pursue this course. The academic program is 2 years long.

 

Career prospects and scope

Nurses have access to Government jobs as well as private sector jobs. They are primarily hired by healthcare institutes. Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, public healthcare centers, community healthcare centers – these are some of the prime recruiters.

 

Apart from that, nurses are also hired by armed forces, NGOs, PSUs and other Government departments. Skilled nurses are in huge demand (in India and abroad). Here’s the list of best nursing colleges in Kerala, West Bengal, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.
