The much awaited Nursing College in Nagaland would commence soon with the Centre and the Indian Nursing College giving the green signal. For this purpose, the centre has already sanctioned Rs. 8 crore for setting up the Nursing College, Kuzholuzo Nienu (Azo), minister health and family welfare, Saturday said. However, the proposal for opening Medical College forwarded by the Christian Institute of Health Science and Research (CIHSR) was still in the pipeline, so far there has been no positive response from the Government of India, Azo added. Speaking at the dedication program of Christian Institute of Health and Science Research (CIHSR) Center’s new private ward at its premises, Azo said, many improvements could be seen in CIHSR under the stewardship of Dr. Abraham Joseph and Dr. Sedevi Angami, medical superintendent CIHSR who have developed it in every field. The new ward consists of four floors including the ground floor, each with 27 rooms and six special or executive rooms. The new ward would be opened for the public within a week while the remaining floors would be opened after some few months. The minister said with dedicated work from the doctors and nurses, CIHSR would one day become excellent and would be known for its world class service. He also disclosed that Nagaland University has already issued No Objection Certificate (NOC) for setting up the Nursing College. For registration, Indian Nursing College would verify and inspect the site followed by another inspection by Assam Nursing College, he added. On the proposal of opening Para Medical Training Institute in the state, Azo disclosed that the centre was likely to release the fund shortly. Also lamenting on the money spent by Nagas for treatment outside the state, Azo said that the economy of Nagaland was drained when patients go out of state for treatment. In order to minimize the rate of out of state treatment, the government was trying to provide world class treatment within the state he added. While asserting that the state government was trying to uplift the state’s economy, Azo also to have a vibrant economy, the primary task was to check flow of funds going out of the state. Later, the health minister along with the members of Christian Institute of Health Science and Research inspected land erosion along Chathe River which is posing grave threat on the institute’s land and decided to take up the matter with the department of Flood and Irrigation. It maybe mentioned that earlier, flash-floods washed away about 100 metres wall of the CIHSR. Earlier, the newly constructed ward was dedicated by Rev. Dr. Tuisem A. Shishak, principal emeriteus, Patkai Christian College, Chumukedima.
