Nurses are a universal gift to all human beings. The dedicated work that they do; the compassion they show; and the selfless service and kindness they deliver on a daily basis serves as a reminder of the underlying humanity inside us all. Choosing to become a nurse is one of the most selfless acts a young student can undertake.

I can proudly say that our faculty is passionate about improving healthcare globally by educating the next generation of nurses and working hard to provide exceptional dedication and individual attention to each student, to bring out nurses who will transform health care efficiently and effectively.

At the same time I am confident that our students are committed to caring for others and will live up to this quote by Christina Feist:
“Every nurse was drawn to nursing because of a desire to care, to serve, or to help.”

I am happy that the college website is being redesigned to facilitate better access for information and activities about the institution. I am sure it will also be very useful for students interested in making a career in this field.

I applaud the efforts of the Principal – Dr. R. Kanagavalli, Director-Medical Dr. Muhammad Thahir and Mr. Yenepoya Abdulla Javeed and their dedicated team, whose hard work and perseverance has resulted in the progression of the institution in all areas. I thank the entire faculty for their dedication, hard work and discipline that has helped in shaping the growth of ZNC.
