The day is not far off in India when nursing professionals will act as Nurses clinicians as in West to narrow this alarming gap and bring laurels to profession of Nursing Education and better health for humanity at large.Akal College of Nursing (ACN), Baru Sahib is unique indeed not only in terms of the divine pristine location but also as an emerging hub of academic excellence imbued with the spirit of humanism etched deep in its fibre.
Nursing Education at ACN has its impact in creating competent professionals who are committed to high degree of professional engagement and holistic healing. These emerging Nursing professionals need to be exposed to the inter-disciplinary approach of clinical research which will pave way for true scientific innovations for India as a nation.
