UP to outshine Kerala as the new nursing ‘hub’
Uttar Pradesh with an increasing number of health facilities under the leadership of Yogi Adityanath will surpass Kerala, which in popular perception has been known to produce the largest number of nursing graduates.
DGME Dr NC Prajapati said that an increase in the number of nurses is needed to provide proper medical services. The previous governments did not work towards this, however, since the year 2017, the Yogi government has made dedicated efforts in this direction.
He also informed that before 2017, only three institutions KGMU, Saifai and Kanpur offered the Bsc nursing course, however, today it is being offered in 11 colleges.
