The amendment in Uttarakhand Subordinate Nursing (Non-Gazetted) Service Rules has cleared the way for recruitment of 1238 posts of Staff Nurses.



The recruitment process will be started again soon after the mandate of the revised rules from the Health Department is issued. With the elimination of one year of experience in the manual, thousands of trainee nurses will get a chance to get jobs.

For the first time, Uttarakhand Technical Education Council has been given the responsibility of recruiting staff nurses. On 12 December, the Council released a release of 1238 posts based on the proposal of the Health Department. January 11 was the deadline for applications. According to the Nursing Service Rules, thousands of candidates were denied application for Staff Nurses as a condition of one year experience from a 30-bed hospital. On this, Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat ordered the department to amend the manual to remove the condition of experience.

Director General of Health, Dr. Amita Upreti wrote a letter to the Council on January 5, asking to postpone the recruitment of staff nurses till the amendment in the manual. The council stopped the application process on this. The cabinet has approved the revised rules by abolishing the experience clause in the manual. Secretary Health Amit Singh Negi says that the cabinet has approved the amendment in the Nursing Recruitment Services Rules. Soon the recruitment process will be started through the Council of Technical Education.

In 1238 posts of staff nurses, 80 percent will be filled with women candidates. While 20 percent of the posts are for male candidates. Women candidates will be selected for 990 posts and male candidates for 248 posts.

Those with D.El.D from NIOS will also be involved in teacher recruitment
Those with D.El.D from NIOS will also be able to join the recruitment of basic teachers. Following the order of the NCTE (National Council of Teacher Teachers), the government has recognized D.El.D from NIOS as a basic teacher’s educational qualification. An order in this regard has been issued by Education Secretary R Meenakshi Sundaram.

Those who have D.El.D from NIOS will have to do TET for teacher recruitment. According to education director RK Kunwar, all districts will be given necessary instructions for this, but there will be no need to revise the recruitment release.

This decision of the government is a delight for those who have D.El.D from NIOS. At the same time, this decision of the government is being opposed by the B.Ed. TET Federation. The federation says that the NIOS has passed the entrance exam without having D.El.D.
