  1. Absolutely wrong decision. Everyone one thinking for global but no one think for own country. Still in India lots of nurses need to work. If GNM stops that means only science student need for bsc. How many parents are efforts to send their student for science subjects? Totally wrong decision by higher authority. Atlest for GNM arts ,comerce student they can applied. And after GNM they can do post basic bsc also. Now for arts ,commerce student where they will go? Atlest for them there was a hope after GNM finish they will get job.

  10. What will happen to all the existing nurses who are working in their respective hospitals? Will they be able to apply for any nursing jobs at all? If there are no gnm vacancies then what’s gonna happen to all the gym. Even though some gnm courses are for 3 years some hospitals drag the course for 4 years which is equal to bsc nursing course but a gnm has to have 3 more years of job experience to go for further studies i.e post bsc nursing which is for 3 years. Is that not unfair to all the gnm nurses? Because the amount of work done by a bsc nurse is also done by a gnm nurse when they join the hospital it’s the same work but why the unfairness?
