The Department enables students to learn the art and science of caring for well and sick children. Students get hands-on experience on preventive health techniques, health assessment, diagnostic test procedures and medical & surgical treatments related to nursing care. The delivery of nursing care is guided by principles of Family-Centered Care. Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) workshops are organized by the department which is an initiative of combating high Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) in India by effective reduction in Neonatal Mortality Rate (NMR) particularly caused by "Birth Asphyxia".
