NURSING SERVICE UNDER HEALTH & FAMILY WELFARE

GOVERNMENT OF MIZORAM

 

                        Nursing Service in Mizoram was started during the British period by the missionaries based on mission  hospitals hundred years ago. But those trainings were on job training without proper certification. Proper and systematic nursing service in Mizoram was established only in 1974. Mizo girls make good  and excellent  nurses probably  because of societal and cultural influence of selfless service to others inherent among the Mizo. They give quality nursing care and are in great demand in many hospitals in India.

 

                        However, nursing service in Mizoram is lagging behind other than the  states of India because of lack of funds, remoteness of the area, difficult communication, due to hilly terrain, difficult in pursuing higher education, in-service  training and professional development. Because of all the above factors as  mentioned above, there are many areas/lots of improvement are necessary to meet  the minimum Health Care service in Mizoram.
