Confused about what to do after the 12th? Yeah, most of the students got this question in their mind and I had seen a majority of students choosing nursing as their career option.
It’s really a good decision to join nursing and take it as a career.
The next hurdle which comes is to take admission to BSc nursing in a good college. There are thousands of colleges in India and it is really hard to select a college for you. That is where we are here to help you out!
The majority of the students prefer Karnataka as an education hub and want to join the colleges there. The best colleges in Karnataka come in Bangalore and here I will be giving you the complete details and guidance for taking BSc nursing admission in Bangalore.
BSc Nursing Admission in Bangalore: Introduction
There are 100+ nursing colleges in Bangalore and 300+ colleges in Karnataka. There are two types of nursing colleges in Bangalore:
- Nursing colleges approved by the Indian Nursing Council or INC.
- Nursing colleges approved by Karnataka Nursing Council or KNC.
You might be thinking what is the difference, right?
If you want to take an education loan for your studies and looking for high-quality colleges, I would suggest you take BSc nursing admission in Bangalore INC colleges.
Note: This doesn’t mean that KNC approved colleges are bad. Keep INC approved colleges as your first preference.
Now you have got more than a hundred options and you have to choose the one suitable for you. Before you choose a college, think about the fees you can afford.
There colleges that charge around Rs. 4 lakhs to Rs.7 lakhs for the total course including your hostel, food, and other charges. So, you have to make a clear idea about your budget.
Everything ready, in the coming section I will tell you how to choose the best BSc nursing college suitable for you. 😀
Choosing a BSc Nursing College in Bangalore
Most of the students and parents just hear about a college, check their website, and just decide to take admission in that college.
I won’t suggest you do so! You are not choosing a college, you are choosing your career…your future…
So let me come directly to the point.
Approvals and Affiliations
As I told you earlier the nursing college must be approved by the INC or KNC. In Bangalore, all the colleges are affiliated to RGUHS or Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences.
Keep your first preference as INC approved colleges in Bangalore. The seats in these colleges get filled early. If you are not able to get admission to INC approved colleges, then only go for KNC approved colleges.
If you are ready to migrate to other places in Karnataka than Bangalore, there are excellent BSc nursing colleges which are approved by INC.
You can contact me for those details.
Hospital and Patient Exposure
There are few colleges that have their own attached hospital and other colleges are tied up with different hospitals. There are colleges which have attached hospital but don’t have enough patient exposure.
Keep in mind:
- The college must have a hospital or must have tied up a hospital that has excellent patient exposure.
- There are colleges that have their own hospital, but low patient exposure.
- To be a better nurse you have the experience treating patients. If you are not having that experience, then you won’t be dealing with different kinds of patients.
Note: There are many colleges which are excellent and far better than colleges in Bangalore. If you are not able to get a seat in the best colleges in Bangalore, you can think of colleges in neighboring places.
Faculties and Departments
The college must have the best faculties and department facilities. I had seen colleges in Karnataka which don’t even have the basic facilities needed.
Why this is important?
Before you start treating the patients practically, you will be given a non-clinical session. If the faculties are not teaching you better in the non-clinical period, how could you even perform during the clinical?

More patients mean more practical experience!
Affordable Fee Structure
As I told you there are hundreds of nursing colleges in Bangalore and all colleges have different fee structures. You can easily find a college within your budget.
Bangalore is known for its climate and anyone can easily adjust to the climate. The mornings and evenings are enjoyed by everyone in Bangalore.
The city is easily connected by air, rail, and road. Students from any corner of the country can easily reach Bangalore. Most of the colleges are easily connected from the airport, railway and bus stations.
