Are you looking for the BSN and BSc Nursing Merit List 2020 in Punjab? Well, keep reading as in this guide you’ll get the updates when these Nursing merit lists will be published in different Nursing schools and colleges of Punjab.
You know already that Nursing Medical Colleges/Schools started admissions in Feb-March 2020, but later on, the date for the applications submissions was extended up to 25 March 2020.
It was announced that the first merit list in all of the Nursing schools and colleges would be displayed on 28 March 2020 and the second merit list to be displayed on 31 March 2020.
However, in March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the country seized the system, and the ministry of education notified all the educational institutions to stop operating until the next notification. Following the government orders, all Nursing schools closed and the Directorate of General Nursing could not compile the final merit lists for the applicants.
When we contacted the Directorate of General Nursing that is the governing body of these all Nursing schools in Punjab, they said, merit lists are ready, and all the official work has been completed.
Today, on 10 November 2020, in a meeting at the Directorate of General Nursing, official letters to the concerned colleges have been issued with orders to Publish the merit lists. Now it’s up to the colleges when they’ll publish. Hopefully, within this week all colleges will notify students about their merits.
Finally decision has been made and all Nursing colleges of the Punjab have been informed about the decision via offical letters. When we talked the focal persons of Specialized Healthcare Department (Primary & Secondary) and the Directorate of General Nursing (DGN), both governing bodies verified the news.
Furthermore, when we called different Nursing schools and talked to the officials. They informed us that we would try our best to publish nursing merit lists as soon as possible because we are already very late.

Reasons for the Delay in Merit Lists 2020
We are in contact with the admins of all Nursing Colleges of Punjab and DGN on daily basis, but unfortunately, they give only expected dates. Before 15 October, it was being said the merit lists are late due to COVID-19 pandemic.
However, for now, we got to know that, General Nursing Council of Pakistan is supervising and the Nursing council has some issues in adjusting the Year-gaps, because 2020 admissions were already late due to some amendments in the admissions criteria and minimizing the Number of Nursing Colleges in Punjab. Before 2020 admissions, there was one Nursing College attached to every district hospital but now there are just 8-10 Nursing Colleges out of 36, in Punjab.
What was Nursing Merit List 2019?
The Nursing Merit list 2019 was not unified like you’ll see this time. In 2019, all colleges and schools published their own BSc Nursing Merit Lists individually.
