Niruta is our 7th nursing student to be welcomed into Doctors for Nepal family.  We have awarded Niruta a full scholarship to study nursing at Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS).  She started her 1st year of study at KAHS Jumla Nursing College in October 2019.  She will finish her training in 2023.

News, November 2020

Due to Covid-19 Niruta has not been able to study at KAHS for the past 8 months as the college is closed.  However, she has tried her best to keep studying from home.  The wi-fi signal is very poor in the remote areas of Nepal, so it’s been very hard for her to access any online teaching.
Here is a short videos that Niruta has made from Jumla outside her college:
