Difference between ANM and GNM Nursing & job opportunities in each field

Difference between ANM and GNM Nursing & job opportunities in each field


I am a student of 10+2 looking forward to making a career in Nursing. I have considered B.Sc in Nursing but I am confused if I should rather go for ANM or GNM Nursing. Please tell me the difference between these courses. What are the job opportunities in each of these fields?

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) in Nursing is an under graduate course of 4 years duration which focuses on the study of basic fundamentals of nursing whereas Auxiliary Nursing Midwifery (Nursing) is a diploma course of 1 year duration which focuses on the study of health care of various individuals. A General Nursing and Midwifery (GNM) is a diploma course of 3 and half year duration includes assessment of various needs of the people from their birth to death. They can put into effect their knowledge gained from the humanities, biological and behavioural sciences in their nursing career.

Even though the service areas are same for a B.Sc Nursing graduate and students with ANM (Nursing) or GNM qualification, their work profiles and pay offered will be different. A graduate with B.Sc in Nursing will definitely be offered a better package than an aspirant with a diploma degree of ANM or GNM. More institutes offer the graduate degree as compared to the diploma degree in Nursing. There are better advanced study options for a graduate as compared to a diploma degree holder.

B.Sc in nursing graduates can seek employment in Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Educational Institutes, Private Clinics, and related Health Departments. They can work as Staff Nurse, Community Health Nurse, Nursing Advisor, Trainer, and Nursing Supervisor.

ANM (Nursing) aspirants can work at Hospitals, Educational Institutes, and Medical Care Units as Home Care Nurse, Nursing tutor, ICU Nurse, Health Care Nurse, and Infection Control Nurse.

GNM aspirants can work at Hospitals, Private clinics, Schools, Private offices, Training institutes, and Rehabilitation centers.

  • Am also an Staff nurse and fOUND so many differences is ANM, GNM & BSC.
    FIST THING, IN RURAL AREAS THERE IS VALUE FOR ANM
    ALSO THEY DONT KNOW THE DIFFERENE BETWEEN GNM BSC AND ANM
    because of such reason there is no respect for Gnm
    in big cities only Gnm and BSc are valued
    again in some hi tech hospital only BSc r reqd no ANM no Gnm

    let's go to key point
    actual staff nurse means GNM
    sfatt nurse cum toutor is BSc
    ANM are to be used as health worker in rural areas field work just beside ASHA.
