The Nursing Staff is the backbone of any hospital and instead of seeking nurses from outside the planners thought of producing trained nurses at our own institution so that we would have nurses who are not only qualified and trained but also have the right accommodating attitude towards the rural folk whom our institution mainly serves.
Setting up our own school has the inherent advantage of having student nurses with some rural, social background as the rural folk themselves.
The School of Nursing was inaugurated before the hospital itself on August 1, 1980, in the OPD wing of the 1st floor of the OPD building for which Shri Gordhanbhai Hathibhai Patel donated Rs. 31 Lakhs and hence the school was named and started as Shri G. H. Patel School of Nursing. The Nursing School is permitted 25 seats.
A new independent building for Nursing School was constructed by the Charutar Arogya Mandal and the Nursing School was shifted there from the OPD building w.e.f. July 24, 1986.
The nursing hostel has been built near the school along with a spacious dining hall. The nursing school has an independent building within the large campus of Shree Krishna Hospital.
With a view to preparing well-trained graduates in nursing, Institution has started a Degree programme in nursing i.e. Basic B.Sc Nursing from October 1, 2014, with an intake of 40 students per year in the same building.
