He said that everyone working in PINS have to be ready all the time and this addition of nurses would play a positive role in work force here.

MS PINS Dr. Ali Razzaq, Nursing Superintendent Razia Shamim and a large number of nurses were present on this occasion.

Special attention must also be paid to providing environment in accordance with the principles of the Institution, she added. ED PINS Prof. Dr. Khalid Mahmood said that the nurses recruited on merit from the Punjab Public Service Commission are fully equipped with professionalism and they are expected to do their best to fulfill their official responsibilities as well.
The service of patients will be a great means of gaining the pleasure of Allah along with the performance of Government duties and all the people associated with the medical field will earn their world as well as the hereafter. Prof. Mahmood said that today like other departments there is also an era of specialization in the field of nursing and it is impossible to reach a higher level of professionalism without higher education, so it is important for nurses to set aside a certain amount of their income for their better education.

The name of this institution has to be kept bright while maintaining this standard, Prof. Khalid Mehmood concluded.
