MP: Catering to a population of more than 50 lakhs, the Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Medical College and Hospital (NSCBMCH) is facing a vacancy of about 200 nursing staff. In an effort to correct the situation, the Medical Education Department will soon initiate a recruitment drive.
Statistics reveal that 350 Nurses are working in the Hospital, which has a bed capacity of more than 900, as against the 500 posts. The reasons cited for this are the candidates preference to join other government Medical Colleges or resigning after being selected for the same.
