The Nurse practitioner in critical care programme was started from the session 2017-2018 in India. On the 21 september 2017, Indian Nursing Council (INC) published a ‘ List of Schools/Colleges of Nursing Under Section 13 and 14 of Indian Nursing Council Act 1947 for NURSE PRACTITIONER IN CRITICAL CARE(NPCC) course for 2017-2018 academic year.’
Later, Due to the legal issues and orders of Karnataka High-court ( Read the case here) , INC was made to take it down. As a result there is no authentic source to know about the recognized colleges for the same . Therefore, hereby we are making that list available to you all for your reference, so you can get the admissions in the right place for the same course.
Although this is a list for the academic year 2017-2018 but it will work until the new session’s list is not been prepared. We are doubtfull that the INC will be able to publish the new list on their official website, so we will try to update it on nursium.com as soon as possible. You can keep visiting us or subscribe us via email so you will get it to know at the earliest.
Total 41 colleges are offering NPCC.
Out of these 41 colleges, 2 are government colleges.
(All the data are according to the INC, 21 September 2017 notification.)
Note: Karanataka State’s Nursing colleges were excluded in this list. In the earlier list (released on INC website in July, 2017) many colleges were included. But it does not mean that in the Karanataka state there are no Institutions recognized. This was the last list published in this regard.
We advice to enquire with the college before making any decisions, or let us know in the comment section if you want to know the status of specific college.
