Welcome To St. Joseph College Of Nursing

St.Joseph College of Nursing is run by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Eluru under V.D.M Charitable Trust at Bishop’s House, Xavier Nagar, Eluru – 534003, A.P, India.


St. Joseph College of Nursing is model, highly rated educational institution in the eyes of the public of Eluru and its surroundings. Do not do anything to lower this image and undermine the esteem with which the college is held in this semi-rural area. Students are required to maintain a sense of discipline and decorum and observe order at all times in the college as well as in public places. Students should refrain from disfiguring walls and furniture and other objectionable practices. No games shall be played during hours allotted for lectures and classes. Matters of discipline will be reviewed periodically and as frequently as may be necessary. Corrective steps including disciplinary action will be taken to check any act in breach of the disciplinary rules.


Punctuality in theory and practical classes,demonstrations,college activities is most essential. The student will appreciate the value of punctuality once he/she is out of the college; equally. Your teachers have been advised to be punctual and also not to permit any student coming late for classes.


The institution pays utmost importance to attendance. After all, the students are admitted into the college for learning and mastering a profession and proper attendance is the only way to achieve sound learning. The attendance rules will be strictly enforced by the college authorities. Eighty percent attendance in theory and practical is a must and students who fail to have the required attendance will not be sent for University examinations. The attendance by the students will be faithfully recorded by the teaching staff and the college authorities will not yield to any external or parental pressure in this connection. Student’s attendance will be periodically displayed on the college notice board for information. Also, if a student is showing less interest in studies and declining in attendance and performance the matter will be brought to the notice of the parents. Parents are requested to take cognizance of such information and advise their wards accordingly.
Students are expected to send a leave letter to college once in case of unexpected and unavoidable absence.

Leave for medical reasons will not be considered and counted for calculation of attendance. Intimation of a medical condition and requesting leave is only a courtesy extended to the college by the student.

Students are forbidden from taking an active part in political agitations or amitations directed against the authority of government. Students are also advised not to involve themselves in any public or mass movements which seem undesirable and bring down the image of the institution.


Ragging is a violation of human rights. Respect humanitarian values and say NO to Ragging. Ragging is neither a means of familiarization nor an introduction with freshers, but a form of psychopathic behaviour.
St. Joseph College of Nursing has always taken adequate measures for prevention and control of ragging every year. However, due to the ugly incidences of ragging in other colleges in the rest of the country appearing in the newspapers and media there is anxiety and fear among the freshers and their family members. The college would like to alleviate this fear and anxiety and provide a conducive environment for learning during the initial period of the course. Following the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s direction we aim to make St.Joseph College of Nursing a ragging free campus.
Students are expected to give an undertaking at the time of admission that they will not indulge in ragging in any form.


No Student or group of students shall form an association except such unions or association constituted by the college authorities for the welfare of the students. No student shall circulate notices or journals or any other form of literature in the college without the permission of the Principal. Any one indulging in such activities may even be expelled from the college.


Students are forbidden to address letters and representation to higher authorities directly. Such letters should first be submitted to the Principal who in turn will forward to the concerned with specific remarks.


Students are strictly informed not to use cell phones in the campus. Those found carrying cell phones into the classroom will be heavily fined and the cell phones will be confiscated.


Students shall look after the equipment and instruments provided by the college with utmost care. Equipment damaged through careless handling will be charged to the student’s account. Students are directed to pay for damaged instruments, equipment and college property as and when advised by the college authorities. Such payment must be made and dues cleared before requesting for a “NO dues” certificate while appearing for University examinations.
