Heya! I hope you are doing well…
If you are a regular reader of our blog, then you will be knowing that almost 70% of the articles posted here are based on requests from our readers. We received a lot of emails and messages from many students asking to list the top 10 BSc nursing colleges in Bangalore.
And after days of research, we are giving you the top 10 list of BSc nursing colleges in Bangalore here. Our team has ranked the colleges depending on the following factors:
- College Infrastructure.
- Patient Exposure.
- Clinical Experience.
As per our research, these are the major things that will build the best nurse in you. In this list, I had not added any government nursing colleges in Bangalore. This is the list of private nursing colleges in Bangalore only.
Note: Like other portals, these are not advertisements. This is a complete genuine list of nursing colleges.
I will be using short forms in most of the contents, so please keep in mind about the following:
- INC – Indian Nursing Council.
- KNC – Karnataka Nursing Council.
- RGUHS – Ravij Gandhi University of Health Sciences.
Before you select a college, I want you to know something which is hidden by most of the colleges and consultants. There are three types of colleges in Bangalore:
- BSc nursing Colleges approved by INC or Indian Nursing Council.
- BSc Nursing Colleges Approved by KNC or Karnataka Nursing Council.
- BSc Nursing Colleges Approved by both INC and KNC.
There not much difference in these types of colleges. I would suggest you join the top 10 BSc nursing colleges which are approved by both INC and KNC. In these colleges, it will be easier for you to get educational loans.
And it will be a little hard for you to get educational loans for only KNC approved colleges. Seats in INC approved BSc nursing colleges in Bangalore will be filled fast.
My Personal Advice: Always keep nursing colleges that are approved by both INC and KNC as your first preference. Also, see whether you can get colleges that have own hospital or are partnered with a good multi-specialty hospital.

BONUS: How to Choose a Nursing College in Bangalore?
There are more than fifty nursing colleges in Bangalore and it is very hard for students to select one from the list. I used to get a lot of emails and calls from students asking about the same.
So, I thought I would tell you how you must select a BSc nursing college in Bangalore.
The main motto of doing BSc nursing is for treating and taking care of patients. For that, we have to deal with hundreds of patients during the course. I would call it clinical experience or patient exposure.
Similar to clinical experience there are few more things I would suggest you check. The college you will join for nursing must :
- Have approvals from the Indian Nursing Council or Karnataka Nursing Council and the Government of Karnataka.
- Be affiliated to a reputed university.
- Have or tied up with a good hospital with excellent patient exposure.
- Have the latest equipment and technologies used for treatments.
- Have excellent faculties who are ready to teach you and guide you.
Now I will explain each of these separately.
Approvals and Affiliations
The college must be approved by INC or KNC and Government of Karnataka. The college must also be affiliated with a good university. Most of the colleges in Bangalore are affiliated to RGUHS or Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore.
If you are planning to take educational loans, then I would strictly ask you to opt for INC approved colleges.
It will be very good if the nursing college has an attached multi-specialty hospital. There are only a few nursing colleges in Bangalore which are having their own hospitals. Seats in these colleges will get filled fast.
You can also join colleges that are tied up with a good hospital with excellent patient exposure. There are many nursing colleges that are partnered with government and private hospitals.
I have noticed a lot of colleges in Bangalore which lacks general equipment. I would say you must go to colleges which provide good facilities. If you have any queries you can contact us for more details.
You must double-check whether the college has excellent faculties. There are many poor standard colleges that don’t have any faculties. I would strictly tell you to join colleges with very good faculties.
I know the way I had explained about the colleges and other information is not as formal as on other websites. I wanted to get deep into students’ minds and clear all the doubts in a simple yet informative way.
I had tried my best to include all the best colleges in this top 10 BSc nursing colleges in Bangalore list. If you found this useful, please do share it with your friends and people in need.
