IntroductionThe Srimanta Sankaradeva University of Health Sciences, established in 2009 through an act of the Assam Legislative Assembly, is the only health university in the North-East region. It has 47 institutions affiliated with it, including 4 nursing colleges. The university has released the official notification for admission into BSc Nursing and Diploma in Pharmacy courses. Accordingly, a Common Entrance Examination (CEE) will be held for both courses under the Directorate of Medical Education, Assam.
For BSc Nursing, the students who clear the CEE will be eligible to apply for any of the following three colleges: BSc Nursing College (Silchar), BSc Nursing College (Dibrugarh), and Regional College of Nursing (Guwahati). In the case of candidates who want to apply for D.Pharm, admissions are open to the Institutes of Pharmacy attached to the three medical colleges of Assam.
EligibilityFor BSc Nursing:
Please note that there will be a reservation of seats according to the government rules. For both courses, SC/ST (both ST plains and ST hills)/OBC/MOBC/TGL (Tea Garden Labour)/Ex-TGL/PWD (Divyang) candidates will be eligible for reservation. For D.Pharm, the Char Area candidates will also be eligible for reservation.
Scheme of examinationThe examination will have three papers in total. These are as follows:
Each of these papers will be of 10+2 standard. A candidate applying for BSc Nursing will have to appear for Papers 1 and 2. A candidate applying for the D.Pharm course should appear in Paper 1 and either Paper 2 or 3. The D.Pharm candidates can appear for both Papers 2 and 3 but in counting the final marks only the higher of the two marks will be counted.

This is a good information regarding the admissions in these colleges for nursing and pharmacy courses. Today, there is a tough job condition in our country and just doing an Arts, Commerce, or Science degree is not going to help in job hunting. From that perspective the nursing and pharmacy related courses are much important and have a better career and job potential. So, it makes sense for the eligible candidates to apply for these courses and appear in the entrance examination. The medical industry is poised for more and more development in the coming times and there is going to be an increasing demand of the medical professionals.
