Greetings from the Alumni Association KAHER Institute of Nursing Sciences, Nehrunagar, Belagavi.

It is the matter of great pride to release the 5th issue of Alumni News letter “SPLICE 2021”

Healthcare industry is transforming itself day by day. The professional nurse provides holistic care with compassion, empathy and respect for clients, dignity while educating them to achieve maximum level of health. Every student who passes through the institution will surely realize his/her dreams and make a positive impact on the community in particular and the world in general. Students who graduate from our institution could greatly contribute to the welfare of the KAHER INS Belagavi through constant communication and periodic update of their work achievements by alma mater. Connecting to one's alma mater is always a great feeling and the college shares this sentiment and is elated when it gets to know about the various personal and professional achievements of its former students after leaving college.

I am pleased with the role of institutions in the preparation of staff nurses in this pandemic process to be prepared to meet covid-19 patients. The alumni of institutions have a tremendous role to play in contributing their covid-19 expertise to different countries.

Enthusiastic alumni shared their clinical experience and teaching through virtual interactive sessions which has added value to our institute. During Covid-19 pandemic, more than 30 alumni delivered their expert lectures.

I congratulate the editorial board for bringing out the alumni news letter SPLICE-2021.
