The nursing profession is the noblest of all professions and is in great demand all over the world, offering a highly rewarding career. While many nursing institutions have attained global recognition, few enjoy the reputation for quality of nursing education and standards of nursing practice like Kasturba Gandhi Nursing College (KGNC) which stands with the motto “Service with Dedication”. The evolution of this incredible institution happened on 6th October 2003. It is a metaphor for Shri. M.K. Rajagopalan, the founder of KGNC, who is the mastermind and helped to propel the institute from the beginning. He is a brilliant entrepreneur and educational activist by nature, adverts effectively and set the tone for the institute’s overall perception. Students can enjoy a unique lifestyle in a reputable tourist destination with all that Pondicherry offers and also well access point to the highest quality education. KGNC aims to prepare nursing fraternity to contribute to the development of emerging healthcare systems in public and private healthcare organizations as well as community services. UG & PG Nursing programmes provide students the opportunity to extend themselves intellectually and clinically, thereby rendering quality healthcare to the general public through our hospital and community services. Twelve batches in Bachelor of Science in Nursing, 8 Batches of Post Basic Bachelor of Science in Nursing and 7 batches of Master of Science in Nursing have already been graduated from KGNC. The institution imparts high-quality professional education to young and aspiring students who have dedicated themselves to be efficient nurses and also to meet the acute shortage of qualified and skilled nursing manpower in our country. Thus, the special impetus is given in KGNC to train students capable of giving comprehensive nursing care, including promoting health, preventive, curative and rehabilitative services to the needy. We train our students to develop the utmost simplicity, obedience, discipline, and professional conduct. By this way, our student nurses will be able to function anywhere across the length and breadth of the globe. Our aim is not only to persevere the excellent record of academic performances but also to discover the hidden skills in each one of our students and encourage them in developing happy, healthy and efficient nurses for the future.
