B.Sc ( Bachelor of Science ) in Nursing degree is an undergraduate degree course of four years with a very good career scope in the field of nursing.

The minimum education required for pursuing for the same degree course is a higher secondary school degree in Science stream with PCB group from a recognized board of education.

Also, the minimum age required for admission to B.Sc in Nursing degree course is 17 years by the 31st December of year of admission to the same degree course.

So, being 16 years old, you are eligible for admission in B.Sc in Nursing degree course this year if you will turn 17 by the 31st December 2018 otherwise you will have to wait till the next year.

Minimum required age to pursue B.Sc. Nursing course is 17 years.

As your age is 16 years now, so may have to wait for 1 year to get admission into B.Sc. Nursing course.

Apart from required age, you must have completed Intermediate with Physics, Chemistry and Biology as primary subjects.

You have passed Intermediate course, it means that you have completed class 10+2. Its a good idea to do B.Sc Nursing course due to the high volume recruitments every year.

Eligibility criteria to study B.Sc Nursing:

>> Candidates should complete class 10+2 in Science stream with Physics, Chemistry and Biology as compulsory subjects.

>> Candidates should obtain minimum 50% marks in aggregate in class 10+2.

>> Candidates age must be minimum 17 years.

*** As you age is 16 years as of now, you are not eligible to study B.Sc Nursing course from this year. You can apply for the course next year.
