IGNOU BSc Nursing Admission 2022 : “The preperation and launching of Post Basic B.Sc. Nursing degree programme has been agreed upon by IGNOU, at the request of Indian Nursing Council. The need for this was felt as the pace of providing higher education to working nurses was very slow due to shortage of Colleges of Nursing and paucity of seats available in each at that time. As per the New National Policy of Education, the emphasis is on the need for making higher education available within the reach of all.

Launching of Post Basic B.Sc. Nursing Programme through Open University will meet such objectives. Further, it will also contribute towards the growth of nursing profession, promote Nation’s idea of accelerating women’s education and uplifting the expanded and extended role of the nursing personnel. The development of this programme has been undertaken with the involvement of nursing experts, scientists and educationists from related disciplines all over the country.
