in eligibility sight it shows only females candidate are eligible , but in application sight it shows that male and female can apply for exam with exam fee of Rs.750. Only females are eligible or males r also allowed to do Indian Army BSc Nursing ????

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019

Prabha, at this point in time, there are no male Nursing Candidates in the Indian Army. The provision is only available for Female Candidates to work as Nurses in the Indian Army and so there is no reason why the course would be applicable for Male candidates. For being eligible for Indian Army B.Sc Nursing, a female candidate who is an Indian National and is either single, divorced or unmarried can apply. And the Candidate should have been born between October 1st 1995 to September 30th, 2003. So just to answer your question, Indian Army B.Sc Nursing is only for female Candidates.

Aman Raj Student Expert 16th Nov, 2019

Hello Smita

This is not your problem only. Everyone faces this problem while running because of the exertion that running and bouncing forces inside the abdominal walls.

So, don't run while you are full or do not eat full stomach before 2-3 hours of running.

Drink lots and lots of Water as sometimes Dehydration causes cramps.

is a girl having skin problem is accepted in indian army for bsc nursing?

Apoorva Student Expert 16th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

Perhaps yes there is no problem and I don't think a girl with skin problem is rejected in medical examination in Indian army for BSC nursing if the disease is is non infectious. Otherwise in the disease communicable or infectious then they might the chances of rejection. while usually skin problems are not infectious and they can be suited with the proper medication. I hope this helps
