As a teaching hospital, KEMH Pune endeavours to provide student doctors and nurses the best of opportunities to learn, to practice and to become proficient in their chosen profession.

Our Philosophy

The faculty of the KEM Hospital School of Nursing believes that the basic purpose of Nursing Education is to train students who, on completion of the education programme are able to plan and give comprehensive nursing care and health guidance to patients and their family members. The nurse must, therefore, be so trained that he/she is intellectually and morally enlightened and technically proficient. The nurse needs to be competent in teaching, oriented to community health and research minded. It is important that the nurse has the necessary knowledge, basic skills and attitude essential for professional nursing practice.

We ensure that the students acquire all these during their training.
