From the Principal's Desk

The opportunities for a nurse are varied and limitless. A new professional nurse may choose between clinical practice, education, research, management, administration, occupational and industrial nursing.

Nursing occupies the largest bulk of the health care force. Healthcare industry is transforming itself day by day. The professional nurse provides holistic care with compassion, empathy and respect for clients, dignity while educating them to achieve maximum level of health. She also participates in those activities contributing to prevention of illness and promotion of health.

Therefore it is necessary to educate nurses in the context of sound educational principles. As a science, nursing is based on scientific knowledge which is expanding, ever changing and diversifying into specialty areas.

The opportunities for a nurse are varied and limitless. A new professional nurse may choose between clinical practice, education, research, management, administration, occupational and industrial nursing.

The horizon has expanded widely abroad with never ending staff shortage in western countries, European Middle East countries not ignoring the demands "at home".

In tune with specialization in medical science, nursing education has moved further to specialty such as Cardiovascular Nursing, Psychiatric nursing, Neonatal Nursing, Critical Care Nursing, Oncology Nursing. etc, to mention a few.
