New Delhi, 19 May 2022 – The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is no longer mandatory to get admission in Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSc Nursing) course in the state of Gujarat. Students of the state can now take direct admissions into medical colleges in the course. They must, however, fulfill all other eligibility criteria to get admission into BSc Nursing in Gujarat. 

The national-level medical entrance examination has been earlier made compulsory for BSc Nursing for national quota seats by the National Medical Commission (NMC). However, the commission had not made it mandatory for state quota seats. Thus, the Gujarat government decided to not adopt NEET 2022 as the admission criteria for state quota seats, and hence, students can get admission into the course without having to appear for the exam.
