Dr. Shailla Cannie, Dean, Faculty of Nursing & Principal
Shri Mata Vaishno Devi College of Nursing has been set up for providing training to youth to enable them to become dedicated and expert nursing professionals. The college is approved by Govt. of Jammu & Kashmir and Indian Nursing Council, New Delhi, and is affiliated to Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University and Jammu and Kashmir State Nursing Council to impart 4 years B.Sc Nursing degree program.
B. Sc. Nursing is an excellent choice for young men and women interested in a health care career after successfully passing of XII standard with Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) subject. On completion of the course, the graduates have numerous job opportunities in the hospitals, communities, school, educational institutions, research institutions, and pharmaceutical companies in any part of the world. Those who intend to continue their studies can opt for M.Sc. and Ph. D. studies in nursing.
Our Bachelor of Nursing degree course provides high achieving undergraduate students with the opportunity to extend themselves intellectually and clinically, there by rendering quality care to the general public through our hospital and community service.
The biggest challenge for nurse educators today is to prepare graduate nurses who are capable of facing emerging challenges and technological advancement in the field of medicine and working at the International level. To practice, a nurse needs to be knowledgeable, skillful and possesses a right attitude to function as care giver communicator, advisor, leader and educator. The faculty at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi College of Nursing strives to facilitate these qualities in the students in line with the philosophy and objectives of the Institution.
To succeed “an individual need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate and someone to inspire and encourage”. I welcome all new students and wish them success through their academic journey out of our college as successful nursing professionals.
