Maharajgunj Nursing Campus is a pioneer Nursing Campus in Nepal established in 1956 A.D. as a school of nursing under the Directorate of Health Services, Ministry of Health. In 1972, with the introduction of new education system plan in Nepal it came under the Tribhuvan University, Institute of Medicine and named as Mahaboudha Nursing Campus until 1986 AD. The campus was moved to Maharajgunj premises of Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital and now it is renamed as Maharajgunj Nursing Campus.
The vision of the Maharajgunj Nursing Campus is to produce nursing and midwifery workforce of optimum level of academic excellence for universal health coverage in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals
Its mission is to prepare nursing and midwifery workforce to lead and transform the care in a rapidly changing, diverse and complex health care environment through academic excellence, innovative research, strong partnerships, and global initiatives.
To achieve our mission and fulfill vision we have three strategic goals:
1. To deliver high quality nursing and midwifery education comparable to the international standards.
2. To promote quality education through faculty development initiative.
3. To upgrade and update the existing academic infrastructure including library and IT facilities to support quality education.
During its more than 6 decades of existence Maharajgunj Nursing Campus has made considerable progress in its programs.
