About Us

The campus is located in half of a 100 year old former palace across the street from the old Shanta Bhawan Hospital. The building was renovated and remodeled with the kind support from the American Schools and Hospital Abroad (ASHA) through Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF). The main building was divided into three parts where Block ‘A’ houses administrative services, faculty offices, and an auditorium. Block ‘B’ houses classrooms, demonstration room, student learning center, and a part of hostels and Block ‘C’ houses hostel. Similarly, there are three other buildings fulfilling the campus needs.

History

Lalitpur Nursing Campus (LNC) was established in 1959 (Previously named as Shanta Bhawan Nursing School), five years after modern medicine was introduced into the Kingdom. LNC became independent with the formation of Board of Directors in December 2003. Until July 2004, the campus was under United Mission to Nepal (UMN). The management and finance were looked upon by the mission. The present status of the campus is financially and administratively associated with the LNC Board of Directors and academically constituent with Tribhuvan University’s Institute of Medicine. The campus celebrated its Golden Jubilee in early 2009. LNC was started initially with Proficiency Certificate Level (PCL) program and now expanded to different faculty in Post Basic Bachelor in Nursing (BN), Generic Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSC), and Masters in Nursing (MN) Programs. BN was started in 1996, MN in 2009, and BSC in 2011.
