University of Health Sciences Nursing Admissions
The University of Health Sciences (UHS) Board of Studies in Nursing has conceded authorization for the examination of candidates who were admitted to government nursing colleges in the previous September-October and, consequently, missed both annual and supplementary exams.
A decision with this impact was taken in a gathering held on Wednesday.
The gathering was led by UHS Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ahsan Waheed Rathore.
The individuals were briefed that in 2022, admissions to the B.Sc. Nursing programs in public sector colleges are held in two stages.
While candidates conceded in Spring April effectively partook in annual and supplementary, those admitted in for September-October couldn’t sit for the two exams.
So, it was decided to take exams of these candidates at first.
To work with this, admissions for the year 2022 were arranged into two parts.
Prof. Dr. Ahsan Waheed Rathore expressed that this choice is being made exclusively in light of the candidates’ challenges, abnormalities, and excuses that won’t be accepted in ongoing admissions.
He explained that the main two tests, i.e., annual and supplementary, will be held in somewhere around one year, and no exceptional exams will be taken for any reason. He further said that UHS means to normalize admissions for all government and private nursing colleges in the year 2023-2024, following the Academic Council decisions.
He said that admissions for the 4-year and 2-year nursing degree programs might start toward the last week of September, with all admissions finalized by December 31 and classes beginning at the start of January.
Prof. Rathore further focused on that there will be no differentiation between government and private nursing colleges. He cautioned that admissions will be terminated for colleges not consenting to Pakistan Nursing Council criteria and standards.
During the gathering, approval was given for the enrollment of students owned up to night shifts in nursing universities for the ongoing academic year. UHS VC, in any case, ordered a thorough admissions process for the qualification and records of all conceded students before registration.
The gathering saw the cooperation of heads and delegates from associated nursing colleges under UHS, alongside the Director General Nursing Punjab Munaza Cheema, UHS Pro VC Prof. Nadia Naseem, Registrar, Prof. Sarah Ghafoor, and Controller of Examination, Dr. Muhammad Abbas.
