It gives me an immense pleasure to the virtual tour of our SDM Institute of Nursing Sciences, Dharwad, established in the year 2006 under the auspice of Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Educational Society, Dharwad. Today the Institute is enjoying the status of Constituent Unit of Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara University, Dharwad a unique multidisciplinary private University is the culmination of vision of our founder Poojya Shri D. Veerendra Heggade, Hon'ble Chancellor. It is one of the renowned Nursing Institute imparting quality nursing education in northern part of Karnataka.

In rapidly changing education scenario and health care delivery system, development in information and communication technology, the nursing education has become more dynamic than ever before.

I personally believe that, education we impart should develop imagination of the student. The imagination is where new ideas are created progress becomes possible and becomes more important than knowledge. Because knowledge is what we already know, whereas the imagination is what moves the individuals forward. Imagination needs innovation. Hence at the SDM Institute of Nursing Sciences.

True to our mission, excellence and quality being our motto, it has been our constant endeavour to train competent compassionate and caring Nurses personnel empowered to be socially conscious morally upright and emotionally balanced.

We are committed in providing technical resources in pursuit of academic success for our students. We achieve this goal by working in partnership with Medical College & Hospital. Nursing Services to implement innovative ideas in the care of patients that create richer teaching and learning experience. We also provide professional development opportunities by effectively integrating innovative educational technologies into teaching practices and work collaboratively in meeting the need of faculty and students.
