As the Bangalore Hospital is having required infrastructure and well qualified and well known consultants and in order to impart quality nursing education and training and also to meet the hospital’s requirement of nurses and to provide quality nurses to the needy public, the hospital proposed the School of Nursing for providing education under the curriculum of Diploma in General Nursing and Midwifery. Accordingly application was made in No.SMARH/945/2003 dated 15.9.2003 to the Registrar, Karnataka State Nursing Council, Bangalore for granting permission to start School of Nursing for offering Diploma in Nursing and Midwifery.
