Nursing can be described as both an art and a science. At its heart, lies the fundamental respect of human dignity and an intuition of patients’ needs. Profession of Nursing is a key component of health care delivery system. It is one of the noblest professions and its significance is acknowledged since the times immemorial. Today’s health care system demands highly qualified, professionally trained and skilled nurses to ensure sound results in the patient care management. In addition, there must be enough number of staff available in the health care settings in order to meet the minimum standards of care. Unfortunately, the current statistics of Pakistan show that there is huge deficiency of qualified nurses in our country. Therefore, it is the need of the day to establish more nursing colleges to address this issue. In this regard, BKMC added a new pillar to its long and continuing foundation in the field of health services and medical education by initiating College of Nursing to introduce two degree nursing programs. I really appreciate the determined efforts of all members associated with the College of Nursing, Mardan in any capacity. I assure my continuous help and support to the College.
