About College

Ankola being Taluka Head Quarters had only basic minimum health care facilities provided by Govt. of Karnataka. Understanding the health care need of Ankola in specific and Uttar Karnataka in general, KLE Society established hospital in the 90’s and today it has grown equal to district Hospital status providing all types of Medical, Surgical and allied services.
After venturing in the health care services, society also understood the need for establishing Nursing institute for the following reasons.
  • Professional Education is the dream for many people due to non-availability of the Institution in the area.
  • The demand for nursing personnel is increasing all over the county and abroad therefore it provides employment opportunities to youth.

KLES Institute of Nursing Sciences, Ankola (UK) was established in September 2003 with the broad vision of KLE Society as an endeavor to provide quality education and traing with an intension to increase the number of qualified nurses in the country. Our institute is offering Diploma in Nursing and B.Sc. Nursing Programme since 2003. We have students from Karnataka, Kerala, Goa, Maharasthra, & other states.
