After the successful conduction of the Joint Indian Military Military Nursing Service (MNS) 2021 examination, aspirants are ardently waiting for the MNS 2022 application form to release. However, the Directorate General of Medical Sciences (DGMS) is yet to provide any clarity about the nursing exam. Naturally, looking at previous-year records seems like the only viable option at the moment. So, based on the exam schedule in the past, the MNS 2022 registration is likely to begin in February 2022, presumably by the second or third week. Let’s take a look at what happened in the last 4 years.
In 2021, DGMS released the MNS application form on the official website, joinindianarmy.nic.in, on February 17, 2021. Interested and eligible candidates could register for the exam on or before March 10, 2021. The exam however, was conducted in July 2021 due to the second-wave of COVID-19. In the case of 2020, the MNS application process began well-in advance i.e., on November 14, 2019. Candidates received time up to December 02, 2019, to complete their registration formalities. Hence, in the last two years itself, candidates could easily see a difference in the exam schedule, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2019, the MNS application process began on November 12, 2018, and continued till November 30, 2018, through the online mode. The written exam was subsequently conducted in January 2019. This schedule is similar to the sequence of events happened in case of MNS 2020 examination. Till 2018, the MNS exam was being conducted by the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC). For the 2018 exam, candidates could register from December 11, 2017. The last date to register for the exam was December 30, 2017. Thereafter, the exam was conducted on February 04, 2018.
Looking at the last 4-year records, it is evident that the sequence of events in 2020, 2019, and 2018 was similar but the events in 2021 underwent a major change due to the pandemic. So, candidates must take a look at the year before for the most accurate date for registration to begin. Hence, referring to 2021, candidates can expect the MNS application form to release in the second or third week of February 2022. the application process is likely to continue till the second week of March 2022.
DGMS will be releasing the MNS 2022 application form on the official website joinindianarmy.nic.in. Candidates will have to register on the portal and generate their login credentials. Thereafter, they must log in to the website, fill the application form, upload the required documents and pay the application fee. After completing these formalities, candidates must take a printout of the application confirmation page for future reference.
The Indian Military MNS examination is conducted every year to select interested and qualified individuals to work as nurses in the Indian Army. This opportunity not only provides candidates to pursue medical but also serve in the Indian Armed Forces. After passing the entrance exam, candidates will get the opportunity to study a 4-year B.Sc.
