The Nursing community in the state has urged the Central government not to pass The Karnataka Nursing and Paramedical Sciences Education (Regulation) Authority Act, 2012 as it would render thousands of nurses jobless.

Speaking at the valedictory of Nurses' week in Bengaluru on Wednesday, T Dileep Kumar, President, Indian Nursing Council said that there would be a shortage of nurses in the country by 2017 if the problems faced by them were not addressed.

“Many nurses would lose their job if the Act is passed and as they will not be getting jobs anywhere.

The Act mandates that nurses should get their certificates from the Paramedical Council instead of the Nursing Council,” he said. Kumar said that the certification of nurses by the Paramedical Council would create problems for those who have already been issued certificate by the Nursing Council.

 The Trained Nurses Association of India (TNAI) is celebrating the International Nurses Week for the first time in its history.

On May 16 and 17, the TNAI had organised a special programme on “Continuous Nursing Education” (CNE) for strengthening and refining the core competencies of nurses. Auxiliary nurses, mid wives, public health nurses and lady health visitor nurses participated in this
programme.
