The Faculty of Nursing came into existence around the nucleus of Rufaida School of Nursing , now called College of Nursing ,when Jamia Hamdard was established as deemed to be university in 1989. The Rufaida School of Nursing was part of Majeedia Hospital prior to the formation of the Faculty of Nursing. The purpose of establishing the school was to contribute towards overcoming shortage of nurses in the country to some extent. The other aim was to encourage girls from Muslim minority community and weaker sections of the society to take up this noble profession.  The objectives with which the faculty was established are:

  • To train and educate nurses at the undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral levels.

  • To make the nurses pursuing undergraduate course capable of providing sound health care.

  • To assess the nursing needs of individuals, families and the communities throughout life.

  • To work with other members of health team and community in promotion of health, prevention of illness, restoration of health and rehabilitation.

The courses offered by the faculty are recognized by the India Nursing Council (INC) .
