The Directorate of General Nursing Punjab has finally announced the BS Nursing Admissions 2022 in 15 Nursing Colleges of Punjab under the criteria that were followed under the BSN admissions 2021 notification published in the Express News on 05,05,2021!
The Directorate of General Nursing has invited applications from the candidates for the BSc Nursing admissions 2021 in the 28 newly upgraded Nursing colleges via the above notification. The merit list of these DHQ Nursing colleges remained delayed over the whole year of 2021 till February 15, 2022. Students remained anxious about the DHQ Nursing Merit lists 2021 for a long time.
However, DGN (Directorate of General Nursing) has now released a new notification on February 16, 2022. The notification shows that those students who had applied in the 4-year BSc Nursing 2021 admissions in 28 DHQ Nursing Colleges can now apply in the 15 Nursing Colleges of Punjab that are affiliated with the different Medical Universities.
Why DHQ Nursing Merit List 2021 Couldn’t be Released?
On the recommendations of different hospitals, the Directorate of General Nursing Punjab, and the health ministry, the government of Punjab decided to upgrade the District Head Quarter Hospital Nursing Schools to DHQ Nursing Colleges back in 2021 to meet the demand of nurses and medical staff in hospitals.
28 DHQ Nursing Schools were upgraded from schools to colleges, and BSc Nursing admissions 2021 notice was also released. Students submitted their applications. However, the merit list remained pending for a long time. The Directorate of General Nursing has again announced that admissions in these 28 Nursing Colleges have been canceled or, in other means, have been shifted to the 15 Nursing Colleges attached with the teaching hospitals affiliated with the medical universities.
According to The Directorate of General Nursing Punjab, admissions in these recently upgraded colleges could not be finalized because the upgrading process is pending. All the concerned departments and ministries have not yet approved the up-gradation. This is due to the shortage of faculty, budget, and other facilities for these colleges. So, until the up-gradation is complete, no admissions will be offered in these colleges.
