The Institute, since its inception in 2004, has been relentlessly contributing to the healthcare industry. All our alumni have enhanced the reputation of the Institute as an inspiring source of the most carefully trained professionals. Their achievements in academics, in their careers and in the overall dynamics as professionals, is unparalleled and without precedent.
A tangible source of strength for the popularity of KNN is the management team led by Dr. K.N. Satish. The people behind the Institute carefully involve themselves with every bit of its functioning and are in close supervision of the day-to-day operations at KNN. The faculty is carefully selected for their caliber and this can be seen in the achievements that each of the faculty has to his or her credit. The involvement of the Management into the welfare of the students lends support to the students that will leave them with quality time for their education, and assures the families of students that their wards are in careful and responsible hands.
KNN has been able to maintain this position by innovatively redefining the tasks and challenges of the future of nursing in India. As we accommodate the demand from society for the highest level of care when it comes to healthcare services, we need to look towards providing training to healthcare professionals in a similar fashion. The present scenario in the industry is not very promising and it has been our intention to change this outlook. In order to do so, we have ventured into a type of education that has a closer proximity with the healthcare industry through our various collaborations, mainly with Columbia-Asia Hospitals, which in a very short period of time has established itself a reputation of providing the highest level of care. We hope that our success will inspire other Institutes to transform their outlook as well.
I have come to appreciate the enormous potential of the KNN community, with a mixed feeling of pride and humility. I am proud to lead this inspiring institution, and I believe that our dedication, sense of duty and belief in our selves as a collective will strengthen our purpose and contribute to success in all our future endeavors.”
