About Us

The Sanskrit word "Acharya” /a:ˈtʃɑːrɪə/, which means “ a prominent religious teacher and a spiritual guide”, epitomizes the quintessential values of our institution, where traditional respect for teachers is of paramount importance.

Smt. Nagarathnamma College of Nursing, a constituent College of the group of Acharya Institutes, was set up in 2003. Nestled among the splendid greenery in the campus that stretches in 120 acres of land, the College has been providing a perfect ambience for the pursuit of excellence in Nursing Education and to learn the full spectrum of nursing care. It is located in an exclusive building, which is 40977 square feet and the building is well planned so as to meet the requirements of Indian Nursing Council New Delhi.

Smt. Nagarathnamma College of Nursing offers the Post Graduate and Graduate Programmes in Nursing. The College is affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS), approved by Karnataka Nursing Council (KNC) and Indian Nursing Council (INC) and is recognized by the Government of Karnataka. The ambience of the Acharya Nursing Institutions and the faculty fully complement this approach and this has seen unparalleled academic and career success for its students. Uniquely nursing students at Acharya get the benefit of a multi-cultural, multi-academics campus, get to participate in a number of academic, curricular and extra-curricular activities and grow up to be complete human beings. The eminent guest lectures and richly endowing outbound learning exercises through community reach-out programmes offer them fantastic hands-on learning experiences, too. Smt. Nagarathnamma College of Nursing received the NAAC Accreditation in 2011.

As Mahatma Gandhi quotes “What is really needed to make democracy function is not knowledge of facts, but right education”, Smt. Nagarathnamma College of Nursing has been giving equal priority to every individual.
