Nursing is a field of medical study which is aimed to provide health care facilities to patients . it is one of the important field in medical science. There are two types of nursing studies in Nepal. One is proficiency certificate level(PCL) which is done after SEE. Another is bachelor of science in nursing (BSc. Nursing) which is done after +2 science.
Nursing has become one of the important choice for the female students in Nepal after SEE or +2. The students who are willing to enter the field of medicine and health care choose this field. The scope is also increasing with increase in demand of health care industry in Nepal.
Although nursing is the main choice of female students these days, yet they haven’t been able to enter is very high (about 500000 to 1000000) and can not be afforded by students belonging to low economic background.
For the solution of this problem many scholarships are provided each year by the government of Nepal and different universities and institutions as well. Not only that some universities and institutions of foreign countries also provide different scholarship schemes for studying Nursing.
For PCL Nursing, Institute of medicine(IMO) of Tribhuwan University (TU) provides some full scholarships and partial scholarships for studying in IMO and its affiliated collages in different levels. Similarly council for Technical Education and vocational training (CTEVT) also provides about 257 scholarships in its main and affiliated collages.
Similarly for B.Sc. Nursing also IMO, TU provides about 10 scholarships for studying in IMO and its affiliated collages. Ministry of education (MOE) also provides some scholarships. They have also separated quotas for women. Dalit , janajati, underprivileged and economically low people. Similarly , BP koirala institute of health science (BPKIHS), Patan Academy of health Science (PAHS) etc. also provide some scholarships for Nursing.
Although the scholarship are available but still many students miss the opportunity for it due to lack of proper information about it. So our main aim is to provide the information about scholarships for Nursing by collecting it from different websites and making it available at one place for the convenience of the students.
