Starting of nursing- world war anecdote
Outside, the fires of World War II were raging, people were being killed and injured every day, and Florence Nightingale, a small lamp, was always at the service of the wounded. Let's talk about nurses who have been highly respected by people all over the world in the last century.

How magh 15 became the national nursing day of Nepal?

Nepal Nursing Association was founded on this day on Magh 15th, 2018BS, and on this occasion, this day is celebrated every year thereafter on every magh 15th.

Background of nursing in Nepal
The nurse reminds me of the hospital and the main thing is health care and loving care. Nurses' Day is celebrated in Nepal on the 15th of Magh every year. After the establishment of Bir Hospital in 1947, there were only a handful of compounders and a handful of people trained in India as health assistants.

The Nepali history of nursing seems to have started in 2013 BS when some Nepali students including housewives were formally trained as nurses during the Rana regime. This year is the 60th edition of Nursing Day in 2078 BS.

During the Rana period, four Nepali disciples, Bidhavati Kansakar, Radha Devi Malakar, Dharmadevi Kansakar, and Bishnu Devi Rai, have a history of training as health assistants from Allahabad, India. After that, the trend of Nepali women coming to India after 4 years and 9 months long nursing courses has increased.

What is surprising about nursing is that there are only a small number of men in this business. Some time ago, some nursing colleges also gave nursing training to men, and later men were not attracted to this profession.

In the beginning, nursing was not seen as a pleasant profession, it was a night duty, it was necessary to work with the sick and wounded. Now the whole dimension of nursing has transformed in Nepal, nurses are taken as a great profession and persona in Nepal. Issues over the minimum wage of nurses working day and night in private hospitals are yet to be settled. Meaningful wishes for this day.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
