Admission to B.Sc. Nursing to be regulated by LBS

No Entrance Test: Admission to B.Sc. Nursing to be regulated by LBS

Are you a student looking to pursue a career in nursing? If yes, then here’s good news for you! The health department has announced that there is No Entrance Test for Admission to B.Sc. for nursing admission this year. Instead, the previous year’s admission method will continue.

The Health Department has informed the State Nursing Council, Arogya Sarvakalashala, and LBS, which conducted the admission process last year. This decision was taken despite the Indian Nursing Council’s instructions to regulate nursing admission based on the entrance exam.

Let’s dive deeper into the details and understand how this decision will impact the future of nursing students.

Regulation of Nursing Admission

The Indian Nursing Council has been advocating for the regulation of nursing admission through an entrance examination. According to them, the entrance exam would ensure academic standards and only the most deserving students would get admission. However, the Health Department has decided to continue with the previous year’s admission process, much to the relief of the students.

Impact on the Future of Nursing Students

While the Health Department’s decision may come as a relief to the students, the members of the Indian Nursing Council are of the view that abandoning the entrance examination will have a long-term impact on the future of the students. According to them, without an entrance examination, there is no way to ensure the academic standards of the students.

Management and Government Seats

B.Sc. Nursing has 50% management seats, which are directly managed by the management. LBS regulates the remaining 50% of government seats. Entry to these seats is made through the admission process. Since there is no entrance exam, the admission process in the state will start after the release of higher secondary results.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Health Department’s decision to continue with the previous year’s admission process may come as a relief to nursing students. However, it is essential to understand that the Indian Nursing Council’s recommendation to regulate nursing admission through an entrance exam is not without merit. Without an entrance examination, there is no way to ensure the academic standards of the students. It remains to be seen how this decision will impact the future of nursing students.
