"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”
All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS) Bhubaneswar, College of Nursing took its infant steps in September 2013 when the first batch of sixty students walked through its corridors. Faculty and staff at the college of nursing put their efforts to nurture young minds to bloom and take forward the torch of this great profession.
