  • What is the difference between GNM studies in medical colleges and in normal Nursing colleges?

However, since the end of 2019, the Supreme Court has stated that INC approval is not mandatory for colleges to conduct Nursing courses and this is not the authority to give approval for Nursing colleges. This means that the State Nursing Council has complete authority to approve and conduct Nursing courses.

    • Government of Karnataka
    • Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science (RGUHS) - for affiliated colleges
