In an attempt to increase women employment numbers, the government of Bihar has initiated various programs to promote nursing jobs among women. The state of Bihar has a rich history of producing women nurses. It is second only to Kerala when it comes to number of nurses passing out each year from various nursing schools and colleges.
The state government is ensuring that nursing courses become easily available and accessible to all women even in remote corners of the state. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, while speaking to media at the launch of “NishchayYatra”, a feedback seeking program, announced that every district in the state will now have a GNM (General Nursing & Midwifery) school along with an ANM (Auxiliary Nursing Midwifery) school in every sub-division.
The five new medical colleges expected to come up shortly across Bihar will also be hosting dedicated nursing schools aimed at increasing the number of nurses passing out each year.
