NURSING COLLEGE STUDENTS PROTEST
Students of Bibi Halima College of Nursing Thursday held demonstrations outside the college premises against the government’s failure to register their degrees. Holding placards, the students were demanding establishment of Nursing Council so that their degrees would be registered. They said the government had passed the Nursing Council Bill long ago, but there has been no headway in its establishment.
In Jammu and Kashmir there are two nursing colleges: College of Nursing SKIMS and J&K Waqaf Board run Bibi Halima College of Nursing and Medical Technology which are yet to be recognized by any Council
As a result, pass-outs from the college are being “denied” admissions and jobs outside the state even as students currently enrolled at the college fear that they may also meet the same fate if their degrees are not recognized.
Students have now decided to bar the new entrants into the college. “We can’t let others suffer so we decided to tell new students to stay away from the colleges”, they said. “We lost many lucrative job offers due to the problem”, said a final year student in College.
