Bachelor of Nursing (Honours)

Nursing, the largest health profession, plays a crucial role in determining national health outcomes. It is a unique profession, it has both the component of arts and sciences. The art of nursing is more than just knowing; it is doing. It bridges information from nurses to patients in a skilful way. On the other hand, the science of Nursing includes the utilization of critical thinking to make sound judgments. All these elements give nurses a significant wealth of knowledge and expertise in caring for the patient. Nursing is a rewarding career with a high demand nationally and globally.
