A patient enters the hospital thinking of it as a place where all his ailments will end and return back home bouncing to life again. But it is a bitter fact that today most of the patients can get infections in hospital while they are being treated for something else. These infections can have devastating emotional, financial and medical effects. Worst of all they can be deadly. Preventing health care infections is a challenge for hospitals today. If all the members of the health care team adhere to correct infection control and prevention practices, then we can minimize or prevent the risk of transmission of infections to our patients, our visitors and our staff.

Principal’s Message

In the 21st century, the health challenges facing the nation have shifted dramatically. The need for personal connection, listening, and caring has never been higher. Nurses consistently rank first in every consumer poll as the most trusted professionals. Nursing is an extremely demanding occupation that encompasses a wide array of challenges. It can also be a very rewarding profession for those suited for it. Caring for ailing patients is more than just a career – It is a calling. As patient needs and care environments have become more complex, nurses need to attain requisite competencies to deliver high - quality care.

These competencies include leadership, health policy, system improvement, research and evidence - based practice and teamwork and collaboration as well as competency in specific content areas such as community, geriatrics etc.Competencies also must move from task - based proficiencies to higher - level competencies that provide a foundation for care management knowledge and decision - making skills under a variety of clinical situations and care settings. Hence improving the education system and achieving a more educated workforce is the need of the hour. Nurses with higher education are needed to teach future generations of nurses and to conduct research that becomes the basis for improvements in nursing science and practice. Amrita College of Nursing as a team works on this philosophy under the guidance of our beloved Amma.

Principal, College of Nursing
