Nursing is generally considered to be a professional course meant for Science stream (Biology group) students. But there are nursing courses available in India, which can be pursued after completing 12th Arts/Commerce stream schooling too! In this article, I will provide more details about those courses.
Nursing is a job oriented medical course. Healthcare sector is growing at a rapid pace. With this growth, the demand for healthcare professionals is also on the rise! Nurses are an integral part of healthcare sector. There is a huge demand for qualified registered nurses in India and abroad.
After 12th Commerce or Arts stream schooling, students are eligible to pursue two Diploma certificate nursing courses. They are-
There exist many institutes in India (recognized by the Indian Nursing Council), which accept Arts/Commerce stream students to pursue the above mentioned courses.
To get more details about ANM (2 years long course) and GNM (3½ years long course) courses, you may click on the links provided above. I’ve written detailed articles about both these nursing courses. Details covered include eligibility criteria, course details, admission process, syllabus, career prospects and career paths available.
Note: The above mentioned programs are Diploma courses. I’ll provide you the career path to follow, in order to get a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.
GNM would be the best course among the 2 nursing courses mentioned above. After completing GNM course and registering as an R.N.R.M., one may pursue B.Sc. Nursing (Post Basic) course (2 or 3 years long). This career path will help one get a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. This, in turn, will improve one’s chances of landing a good job! After completing B.Sc. Nursing Post Basic program, one may then go for advanced courses like M.Sc. Nursing, PG Diploma in Nursing, M.Phil. Nursing and PhD program.
If you choose to pursue ANM, you’ll have to complete the course and then go for GNM course. After completing GNM, you’ll have to follow the career path mentioned above and gain a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing! After completing B.Sc. Nursing Post Basic program, one may then go for advanced courses like M.Sc. Nursing, PG Diploma in Nursing, M.Phil. Nursing and PhD program.
Other than the courses mentioned in this article, commerce and arts stream students may also go for paramedical nursing courses. But those courses are not as valuable as the ones mentioned here.
