Faculty of Nursing came into existence around the nucleus of Rufaida
School of Nursing , now called College of Nursing ,when Jamia Hamdard was established as deemed to be
university in 1989. The Rufaida School of Nursing was part of Majeedia
Hospital prior to the formation of the Faculty of Nursing. The purpose of
establishing the school was to contribute towards overcoming shortage of
nurses in the country to some extent. The other aim was to encourage girls
from Muslim minority community and weaker sections of the society to take up this noble
profession. The objectives with which
the faculty was established are:
To train and educate nurses at the undergraduate,
post-graduate and doctoral levels.
To make the nurses pursuing undergraduate course
capable of providing sound health care.
To assess the nursing needs of individuals,
families and the communities throughout life.
To work with other members of health team and
community in promotion of health, prevention of illness, restoration
of health and rehabilitation.
The courses offered by the faculty are recognized by
the India Nursing Council (INC) .
Besides, usual training in Hospitals, GNM and B.Sc.

Primary Health Care Centres for field experience. During these postings
they do the home visiting, and conduct health teaching programmes apart

the health camps organized by these Centres. The students have been
