Since a long time, words such as ‘noble profession’, ‘service to humanity’, etc. have been in use to describe the profession of nursing. None of these descriptions is overstated and the significance of their role in today’s world is only growing by the day. This is because the health sector is one of the most rapidly growing sectors today. Its scope and importance have grown to gigantic proportions. Traditional hospitals are making way for super speciality hospitals consisting of sophisticated infrastructure and equipment. Speciality hospitals have become commonplace even in tier 2 and tier 3 cities. As a result, people across regions are receiving good quality healthcare and the average life span of humans is increasing. The rising income of people has also given more focus to the need for quality healthcare. In the midst of all this transformation, the demand for quality nurses is mounting. The personal care and service rendered by nurses is irreplaceable. They provide the human touch and tend to the sick and wounded with courage.

The nursing community, today, has particular importance and is one of the largest professional communities. Yet their supply is nowhere close to the demand. The shortage of nurses definitely affects the quality of health care provided to the patients. In this light, developing proficient nurses with strong professional values and ethics is of paramount importance.

BLDE Association’s Shri B. M. Patil Insitute of Nursing Sciences, a well-renowned nursing college in Vijayapura, is responding to the needs of the society with all sincerity. Established initially as BLDEA’s School of Nursing in 1990, the institute has over the years evolved into a professional institution committed to setting higher standards in nursing education. This is evident in the excellent academic performance consistently demonstrated by our students in the university examinations conducted by RGUHS. Our students have also been securing top ranks in the university examinations.

AT SBMPINS, we have set our sights on higher goals. We want to provide best-in-class education and training to the aspiring professionals to ensure that they build a rewarding career in India and abroad and serve the cause of better healthcare. By doing so, we would like to contribute to the health sector by fulfilling its demand for quality nurses and thus render yeoman’s service to humanity.
