The IINR story

International Institute of Nursing & Research believes in contributing to every source of enlightenment in the field of nursing education. It is located at Kalyani, the medi-city of West Bengal, and affiliated to the West Bengal University of Health Sciences, Kolkata. The institution is recognised by Indian Nursing Council and dully permitted by the Govt. of West Bengal.

IINR offers three courses: General Nursing and Midwifery, BSc Nursing and Post Basic Nursing, under West Bengal University of Health Sciences.

IINR is committed to creating an educational environment conducive for the students and teachers to gain inquiry-driven, self-directed learning with the aim to instil in students lifelong learning for nursing practice.


In 2017, we began our journey with the opening of the International Institute of Nursing & Research at Kalyani. – a tribute to my mother Nirmala Ghosh and dedicated to the Nursing fraternity. Our intent was to bridge the gaps between the existing healthcare sector and empower the nursing professionals to make informed career choices.

Over the years, our students have consistently raised the bar in terms of learning and community services and have made IINR one of the finest nursing institutions in the country. Powering this growth has been made possible with the academic talent of our faculty members. The faculty stands as the backbone of our institution. These silent saviours work diligently, tirelessly, with complete commitment and single-minded dedication to every single student.

Undoubtedly, nursing has made its place among the noblest profession of callings. It is both an art and a science, making it a profession that demands care, compassion and complete immersion. With the help of our accomplished and talented faculty, we seek to create an environment of learning and caring that instils values and inspires the next generation of nursing professionals.

Indeed, IINR is an integral part of the greater journey to touch and serve more lives, and overcoming the challenges of the economy and demography. We pledge to intensify our efforts to promote health, spread hope and enrich humanity.
