The Indian healthcare system is vast, and nurses form a significant part of it. The country has more than 3.5 million registered nurses, and their contribution to the healthcare system is immense. Nurses in India work in various settings, including hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and community health centers. They are responsible for providing care to patients, administering medications, monitoring vital signs, and ensuring that patients are comfortable.

In recent times, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the spotlight on the vital role of nurses in healthcare. Nurses in India have been at the forefront of the battle against the pandemic, working tirelessly to provide care to patients and prevent the spread of the virus. Despite facing several challenges, including shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE), long working hours, and emotional stress, nurses have continued to provide care and support to patients.
