Load-shedding in nursing syllabus: RGUHS Registrar

To reduce the burden of excess syllabus on nursing students, Sachidananda, Registrar of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS), made an announced at the farewell ceremony of “JSS Nurses Fest-2009” for the revision of curriculum of the course.

Sachidananda explained that the curriculum needs to be updated and revised because the nursing students have to study seven subjects in the first year as compared to only three subjects in the first year of medicine courses.

The changes will be effective from next academic year, he said.

Focus on nursing education

The focus on improvement of quality of nursing education came to light when S Ramananda, vice-chancellor of RGUHS, spoke on May 15, last Friday, at Mangalore on how mushrooming of several nursing colleges and their inability to provide necessary infrastructure has drastically reduced quality of nursing education in the state.

He mentioned that in the last academic year, only 9,645 seats were filled out of the total 15,465 available seats. 59 nursing institutes in the state remained completely vacant last year.
