In the recent times, how is the attraction of Nursing education among SEE graduates in Nepal?

The Nursing education has high attraction in the context of Nepal. But in the recent days, Nursing education has become costlier and in the same token, nurses are paid low salaries in Nepal. Due to such an imbalance between investment and earning, most nurses tend to leave the country as they are getting good opportunities in foreign lands. The trend of leaving the country for further studies and for seeking jobs has been increased dramatically in the recent days.

You offer both ten-plus-two program and Nursing education affiliated to NEB and CTEVT respectively. What suggestions would you like to give SEE graduates who are in search of a right college for further studies?

In real speaking, I would prefer ten-plus-two education. It is the foundation of higher education and there are many options to go to technical field after completing this level. It also opens multiple gateways for MBBS, Engineering, Chartered Accountancy and so on. People, who want to get an immediate job by investing a little amount of money and short period of time, they’d better embark on CTEVT courses; however, students who aim high for their future and are likely to become highly qualified human resources in such socially acclaimed professions, such as engineers, doctors, CA etc, they’d better get enrolled in a ten-plus-two college?

What suggestions would you like to give SEE graduates that they should choose a right college?

The students should choose such a college which individually cares and guides students. Nightingale College is such a destination for quality education where individual care and regular study has been maintained well. It has maintained a strict discipline and given homely care to students so that they feel comfortable and secure while studying. So, I suggest that students pay a visit to Nightingale College for science, management and nursing education. We run only five sections in Science faculty and five sections in Management including and 40 students for nursing program. Each section comprises 40 students. So, we can pay close attention on each individual student.
