Nursing - Eligibility


There are number of institutes which offer diploma, graduate and postgraduate courses in nursing as well as midwifery courses. There are also specialization programs which depend on the type of care required by the patients and the department in which the nurses work. It is beneficial for both the patients and the nurses as the nurses can perform their job more easily and efficiently.

Specialization fields may include psychiatric nursing, paediatric nursing, orthopaedic nursing etc.

Each country has it own organization for the registration of nurses. After the successful completion of training, a nurse should register her name with the State's Nurses Council to be eligible for employment. Nursing training is a combination of theory and practice. During the period of training nursing students are given practical instruction by senior ward staff. Their work is organized and supervised by nurse-tutors. During the training period nurses are moved around all hospital departments. Gradually they are entrusted with more responsibility so that the transition from training to taking full responsibility seems quite natural.

Apart from academic qualifications nursing is a profession of discipline, patience, responsibility, punctuality, commitment and dedication. The job requires a lot of hard work, stamina, alertness of mind, adaptability to follow difficult time schedules, ability to think in crisis, good team spirit etc.
