Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, Vice-Chairman, Mata Amritanandamayi Math and President, Board of Management, Amrita University, recently addressed faculty, staff and students at the 13th convocation ceremony held at Coimbatore campus on August 21, 2016. Included below are excerpts from his talk. We live in a ‘Result Oriented Society.’ Our parents, teachers, society and people around us have conditioned our minds in such a way that we don’t want to do anything unless we are paid, unless we get something in return. WIIFM… What Is In It For Me…? This goes on within our minds almost like a mantra. It is high time that we seriously think to bring about a change both in our focus and attitude. Parents, teachers and leaders should encourage our students to change their focus from, ‘Result to Action.’ Action is more important. When focus on action becomes 100 percent, when dedication in action arises, productivity increases automatically.

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.
