Program Details

Short-term program

The candidates eligible for this course should have successfully completed the Auxiliary Nurse Midwifery course, a multipurpose health worker or trained nursing care program, as part of a vocational course. Candidates for this program have to be sponsored by a hospital.

Long-term program

The duration of the program is two years – the first year is divided into two semesters, and the second year includes an internship.

In the first semester, trainees will learn the fundamentals of nursing, anatomy and physiology, therapeutic communications in nursing and pharmacology. The second semester will focus on common ocular disorders, ophthalmic theatre, and microbiology, which will be followed by practical experience.

In the second year, i.e. internship, the students will undergo supervised and intensive practical training. This helps bridge the gap between the academic perspectives and the conflict between practical experience upon entering the work arena. The experience will enable them to gain confidence in their professional skills. Students will be required to work in all the essential shifts, make presentations, and participate in group teaching and discussion. They will be taught professionalism in planning, delivery and evaluation of patient care.


Internal examiners will conduct examinations at the end of each semester. There will be three theory papers followed by practicals.


The trainees’ progress will be monitored regularly and evaluated each month and the scores mailed to their parents/guardians.
