CRP Nursing College
CRP Nursing College has earned the name and fame of one of the best nursing colleges of the country. The journey was not an easy one. CRP Training Institute started its journey in 1993 with a 15 days’ certificate course on Spinal Cord Injury and Bedsore Management. Later, the duration of the course was extended to 60 days. Nurses from different government hospitals of the country participated in that certificate course. Upon request from Bangladesh government, a 1 year course named Diploma in Rehabilitation Nursing was started in 1997. Nursing Wing of Bangladesh Health Professions’ Institute (BHPI) operated the course with success. In 2004, a 4 years’ diploma course named Diploma in Nursing, Midwifery and Orthopedics was started with only 10 students. In 2007, the course curriculum was modified by Bangladesh Nursing & Midwifery Council. The course has taken the name of Diploma in Nursing Science and Midwifery. The duration of the course is 3 years. In 2010, Nursing Wing got separated from BHPI and started its journey as an independent body in the name of CRP Nursing Institute in a separate building. In 2010, CRP Nursing Institute was renamed to CRP Nursing College and a 4 years’ B.Sc in Nursing course was started.
