The word ‘Nursing’ comes from the word nutritious which means to nourish, to cherish, to protect, to support, to sustain etc. It also means to train, to educate and to supply the essentials of growth. The basic course in Nursing will prepare Nurses for first level position in Nursing, both in hospital and in the community. The concept of nursing is based on the unique function of the nurse which is “to assist the individual, sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (or to peaceful death) that he would perform unaided if he had necessary strength, will and knowledge and to do this in such a way so as to help him to gain independence as quickly as possible.”

This course will assist nurses in their personal and professional development so that they may make their maximum contribution to the society as individual citizens and nurses.
