“NEIGRIHMS Shillong Opens B.Sc. Nursing Admissions for 2024-25 Through NEET-UG”

The North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health & Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS) in Shillong has recently unveiled a pivotal change in its admission procedure for the B.Sc. Nursing course for the 2024-25 academic year. According to the latest notification from the institution, aspiring students looking to join the College of Nursing at NEIGRIHMS will now have to pass the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Undergraduate (NEET-UG), overseen by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

This development represents a significant shift from the institute’s prior policy. Until now, NEIGRIHMS conducted its own entrance exam to select candidates for its B.Sc. Nursing program. Moving forward, however, the selection process will rely exclusively on the candidates’ performance in the NEET-UG exam.

The decision to integrate the NEET-UG scores for B.Sc. Nursing admissions aligns NEIGRIHMS with a standardized national framework for medical and allied health sciences education, ensuring a unified criterion for assessing applicants’ eligibility and merit. This change underscores the institute’s commitment to maintaining high academic and professional standards in nursing education.
