Message from Principal's Desk

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 speciality 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 and Middle East countries not ignoring the demands "at home".

There are opportunities for them to become independent practitioners and clinical nurse specialists. A nurse's role in future will undergo rapid changes especially in the corporatised health care industry. They will become career information navigators, interpreters of health related matters, decision making facilitators, managers, customer custodians, patients empowerers, critical thinkers, and info mediators who will guide patients apart from being the traditional care givers.

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

The board of management of P. D. Hinduja Hospital & MRC is committed to improvement of standards of nursing education and hence the School of Nursing has been upgraded to College of Nursing under Maharashtra University Health Sciences, Nashik with approval by Central Council ((INC) and State Council (MNC) in the year 2006. This milestone was to mark Silver Jubilee of the School of Nursing. 485 Graduates have passed out from the School of Nursing since and most of them are members of the Alumni Association which was launched in 2007. They are spread all over the world.

College of Nursing is also starting M. Sc Nursing from this academic year.

At this juncture we fondly remember Mrs. Lalita Girdhar Hinduja, who was the visionary behind Nursing at Hinduja and more specifically, School of Nursing.

We at Hinduja strive to achieve Quality in education while ensuring overall development of the students. We also recognise the importance of providing a supportive and stimulative learning environment using innovative teaching & learning strategies and technological advances.

* One of the unique features of College of Nursing is to acknowledge the "Best Outgoing Student" with gold medal in memory of Lalita Girdhar Hinduja and a trophy for "Best Clinical Nurse". Apart from this, meritorious students receive 100% scholarship from Hinduja management. We also encourage our students to avail other scholarships such as Sir Ratan Tata Scholarship.

Principal, College of Nursing
