Sacred Heart Nursing School

The underlying philosophy of Sacred Heart Hospital is to give witness to the compassionate love of Lord Jesus Christ through selfless and dedicated service to the sick and suffering people irrespective of their caste, colour, creed or their economic condition. No patient who sought medical aid from Sacred Heart Hospital has ever been turned away because he or she could not afford it. At the same, the hospital has been keeping up with the latest in the modern medical technology by introducing new equipments and adding new facilities. But what made Sacred Heart Hospital a unique institution has been its success in maintaining the highest standard of the medical and nursing care it gives to its patients.

The Catholic Christian community of Punjab always wanted a school of nursing to train their children to become qualified nurses who would be imbued with the service mentality cultivated by Sacred Heart Hospital. Though there was a total ban on opening new nursing schools in Punjab, impressed by the quality of service rendered by Sacred Heart Hospital, the administration agreed to lift the ban in favour Sacred Heart Hospital and permission was given to open Sacred Heart School of Nursing in 1995. With twenty students, the school was formally blessed and inaugurated by the Bishop of Jalandhar, His Excellency Rt. Rev. Dr. Symphorian Keeprath. Right from its beginning, Sacred School of Nursing has been trying to teach its students the value of compassionate love and selfless service for the welfare of the patient. It firmly believes that nursing is a calling to carry out the compassionate healing ministry as commanded by Lord Jesus Christ. Every patient expects the nurse to soothe his or her pain and help in the healing process. Sacred Heart School of Nursing fosters a holistic approach to the healing ministry and has adopted, “Impart Holistic Health Care to the Patients” as its motto.
