Dear Student,

I am afraid only female dependant wards of serving/retired army personnel including the war widows are eligible for the B. Sc. Nursing course at ACN Jalandhar Cantt.

However, Following is the eligibility criteria as per the official website of the institute for your reference:

The admission to the B. Sc. Nursing course at ACN Jalandhar Cantt. is exclusively open for the female dependant wards of serving/retired army personnel including the war widows. The seats are likely to be increased from 50 to 60 wef next Academic Session i.e. 2017-2018. The dependants of following category of army personnel are eligible : -


• Serving or Retired Army Personnel in receipt of regular pension/liberalized family pension, family pension or disability pension or disability pension at the time of their superannuation, demise, discharge, release medical board/invalided medical board or ex Army personnel are who have taken discharge/release after ten years of service (Submit Certificate No 1).

• Army personnel killed in action or those who died during their service or disabled in action in Army (Submit Certificate No 2).
