Nitte Usha Institute of Nursing Sciences

About Us

Nitte Education Trust was founded in 1979 by Justice K S Hegde, Judge of the Supreme Court of India and Speaker of the Lok Sabha. Justice Hegde strongly believed that education is pivotal to the overall progress of a community and this vision led to the birth of Nitte Education Trust. His legacy is being continued by his son, Mr. N V Hegde.

Nitte Usha Institute of Nursing Sciences was established in 1992. It is one of the most reputed institutions offering nursing education in Karnataka. The institute operates in a building of over 50000 sq.ft that is situated within a sprawling 22 acre campus at Paneer, Mangaluru. With the excellent clinical facilities offered at the 1200 bed, super-specialty K S Hegde Hospital, the students have gained exposure and training, necessary for their profession. One of the major components of nursing education is health promotion of rural and urban communities at the primary level. To encourage work in this direction, the college offers excellent opportunities to students to participate in all major National Health Programs and National Health Day celebrations, in collaboration with Primary Health Care Centres.
