An important update has come to light amid reports of the MNS 2022 official notification releasing soon. Accordingly, Indian Army is likely to conduct the Military Nursing Service (MNS) 2022 admission process through NEET 2022 exam scores. Although an official notice confirming the same will be released soon, this news surfaced as a reply to an inquiry mailed by the candidate to Indian Army authorities.
Usually, the Indian Army conducts its own test to admit eligible and qualified candidates for the 4-year B.Sc. Nursing course. However, this year, the admission process is likely to undergo a revamp with NEET 2022 entering the picture. The National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) 2022 is all set to be conducted on July 17, 2022.
