List of all(almost) nursing organizations in India(NGO'S, Political & local)


Alone We Can Do So Little; Together We Can Do So Much

: Helen Keller

Like it or not, nursing organizations have a very important role in wellbeing of nurses in India.

Traditionally nurses were always been reluctant to organize, unionize and ask for rights.

Many reasons include not having time to even think about issues(too tired to even eat, right?), fear of being a scape goat, brainwashing based on the idea of selfless caring & charity etc.

Majority of workforce being female(may be because of social construct of women in India) also might have contributed to less resistance.

In mainstream Indian industries women started to join workforce in large only since 1991.

Even with slow starting, we managed to organize ourselves through few different organizations in both local, state level and national scenes.

It is just a beginning, and still majority of the work force is not organized.

That is why i suggest everyone to join & support one or more nursing organization near you.

There has been many planned & targeted attacks on nursing organizations to break the unity & turn nurses on each other.

Some organizations might have political or other allegiances. But as long as they are raising the voice for ‘wellbeing and justice’ for nurses, we have to support them.

So following are some of the top Organizations working for the wellbeing of nurses.
