Te program was organized jointly by Manipal College of Nursing, Manipal, Manipal School of Nursing and Nursing Service Department of Kasturba Hospital, Manipal. Prof Veigas delivered a speech on this occasion which marked the International Nurses Day Program, which was held on Friday stating that millennium goals should be set, achieved and maintained to check chronic illnesses.

According to Pro Chacellor of Manipal University, Dr. H. S. Ballal, nurses are the frontline care givers who can serve as the best marketing people for any hospital through their quality services and that patients do discuss about the quality of nursing care they receive. Nurses are almost equivalent to medical professionals.
