Background
Nursing is a profession which is not, in fact, looked on with dignity and honour in our country.  It is not given the proper value and dignity. There is only one B.Sc Nursing College run by the Government of Bangladesh. At present in private sector, there are some nursing colleges which have come up for producing skilled nurses. But still now, there is a huge shortage of skilled nurses in Bangladesh and also abroad. If we can run this Nursing College with quality, these graduates will not only be able to work in the country but also will get opportunities to work in Europe, Middle East and United States. We want to give them the practical exposure from the very beginning along with English and computer literacy.
