“Nurses are a unique kind. They have this insatiable need to care for others, which is both their greatest strength and fatal flaw.” —Jean Watson,

As nurses, our work and our vision are key to improving health equity. Health care is on the cusp of a transition—moving away from payment for visits and procedures to payment for population health. This is another space where nurses are leading. Nurses play a key role in transforming health and improving the health of people at large. They are involved in providing care to individuals, families and communities in virtually all locations in which health care services are delivered including hospitals, long-term care facilities, workplaces, terminal care facilities, ambulatory care settings, homes and schools.

As a school, we will focus more on what graduates are able to do rather than on the content that is taught. This provides the opportunity to advance our curriculum to what matters most in people’s real lives. And as leaders in nursing, we must prepare future nurses in ways that include, but are not limited to, the acute care setting. The scope of Nursing practice includes nurses in clinical, faculty, Advanced Practice Nurse, Nurse Leaders and Nurse Researchers. Nursing profession carries the enormous responsibility of leading reforms in health and health care systems, improving health outcomes of patients, their families, generating and translating knowledge that improves nursing education, practices and leadership skills. It is our job to lead our students into the future and equip them for the many roles and settings where our profession is growing.

INSSR offers student-centered, accessible, affordable and high-quality nursing education, and are focus is mainly on student nurse, who wishes to excel in the profession. Our School has been preparing the finest professional nurses who care, cure and create new knowledge in improving the health of individuals, families, and communities. Most importantly, our graduate nurses assume leadership roles around the globe and actively shape the health care of tomorrow.

The college has its own unique interdisciplinary practices where the student learns and works with faculty in practicing clinical skills. We integrate experiential learning and work for future health care professionals.

Institute of Nursing Science School and Research adopts

Simulations in Nursing Education

A simulation-based approach to learning has proven to be highly effective across industries because it allows students to develop crucial skills without risk.

Case-based learning

The investigative case-based learning approach is a method of learning and teaching that gives students opportunities to direct their learning as they explore the science underlying realistically complex situations.

Project-Based Learning

Research confirms that project-based learning (PBL) is an effective and enjoyable way to learn. PBL also develops deeper learning competencies required for success in college, career, and civic life Project-based learning uses real-world scenarios, challenges, and problems to engage students in critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and self-management. Once students solve the problem or challenge, they present their solutions.

Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)

EBP is imperative for ensuring patient safety. Although teaching strategies to enhance EBP knowledge and skills are ecommended, recent research indicates that nurses may not be well prepared to apply EBP. A three-level hierarchy for teaching and learning evidence-based medicine is suggested, including the requirement for interactive clinical activities in EBP teaching strategies. Interactive methods including interactive lectures, small group work, journal clubs,  reading quizzes, clinical nurse presentations, workshops, and problem-based learning are needed in teaching EBP. An interactive approach involves interaction among  the participants. Effective learning reflects the quality of teaching. Learning through a constructivist approach refers to the creation of an environment in which the learner  is an active participant who gains experience and engages in reflection, leading to problem– based, transformative learning.

Activity Based Continuous Assessment System (ABCA)

Activity-based learning is the process of learning by performing tasks or activities. INSSR, ITM University adopts ABCA learning to motivate nursing students to participate in their own learning experience via practical activities such as independent investigation and problem-solving. By encouraging students to explore, experiment, and learn independently through activity-based techniques, faculty seek to equip students with skills in critical analysis, problem-solving, and creativity.

These placements allow students to gain hands-on experience under the supervision of experienced professionals. Jayarogya Hospital, Gwalior, Kamla Raja Hospital, Gwalior, District and maternity Hospital Morar, Mansi Aarogya Shala, Gwalior, District Hospital Hajira.
  2. Research Collaboration: Institute of Nursing Science Studies and Research collaborate with healthcare institutions on research projects. This collaboration not only advances scientific knowledge but also provides students with opportunities to participate in meaningful research.
  3. Employment Opportunities: Institute of Nursing Science Studies and Research with  Industry collaboration can lead to job placement opportunities for nursing graduates. Healthcare institutions often recruit directly from nursing schools they have partnered with. Eg. Fortis,, Max hospitals , NHS hospitals
