The University of Houston College of Nursing and the Indian Nursing Council, a national regulatory body for nurses and nurse education in India, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), for developing opportunities for nursing education in India through academic and leadership exchange.

The Nurse Practitioner Critical Care programmes in India will support hospitals to increase the number of higher educated nurses trained to care for critically ill patients. The nurse practitioners will work closely with physicians to provide treatment and care for patients in intensive care units.

Graduates of the Nurse Practitioner Critical Care programme will be eligible to pursue the doctoral programme. The Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) programme is a professional graduate degree which focuses on the clinical aspects of a disease process and uses evidenced-based practice to improve patient outcomes. Nurses in India with a DNP will have completed the highest level of training in nursing practice.
