PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Prof. K. T. Moly
Principal, College of Nursing

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.
