Nursing professionals play an important role in the health care delivery system. There is acute shortage of qualified nurses in the country both for the nursing services and education. To strengthen the role of nurses, an educational institution called Dhanvanthari School of Nursing was established in the year 2004.

This School professes the motto Search …….Share………Care” SEARCH for newer knowledge and newer ways to discover the real needs of human person through research. SHARE this knowledge with Nursing Education and develop skills in providing Quality CARE to the clients with a Holistic approach without distinction of caste, race or social status. In an effort to uplift the status and standard of nursing profession B.SC nursing programme is being started this year. This course is affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of health sciences, Bangalore and recognized by Indian Nursing Council, New Delhi.

The College is located in the famous temple and educational town of Udupi, in the coastal Karnataka popularly known as ‘The Karavali region’. Located about 5 kms from the coast of Arabian sea, Udupi is known for the Srikrishna temple and Ashta Matas, and its religious culture and tradition. The town which has glorious tradition of peaceful co-existence of different faiths and communities is well connected with the rest of the country by rail by the prestigious Konkan railway, road and air.


The College campus spread over 15 acres is situated besides the national highway 17 connecting Mumbai to Thiruvanathapuram. It provides a serene environment for learning and assimilation. It has all the basic amenities and facilities and is easily approachable from all corners of the town by road and readily available public transport. The Udupi railway station is just 5 Kilometers away from the College campus. The nearest airport is the Mangalore airport at Bajpe is about 50kms from the campus.

The main purpose of this college of nursing is to provide an educational programme through which the student nurses will be prepared to assume responsibility of the primary, secondary and tertiary care level of hospital. The graduates will also be capable of teaching and supervising the student nurses in providing safe and quality health care with different settings and participate in administration of nursing services and education.

The faculty of the College of Nursing believes in providing nursing education based and built on scientific principles and sound educational theory and practice in order to prepare professionally qualified nurses, who will be able to function as a team member, in all health care agencies in the role of a practicing nurse.

It is unique in this institution to have consultant doctors of various departments to give first hand theoretical and practical experience to nurses, as all doctors have special interest in teaching.

We promote all round development of the student with special emphasis on human, moral, psychological, cultural, intellectual and spiritual aspects which is required to prepare a professional nurse who will be a contributing citizen and an effective “change agent” in an ever changing society.
