Women Nurses in India survive under pathetic working conditions, meagre salary, and degrading social stigma.

Women Nurses in India survive under pathetic working conditions, meagre salary, and degrading social stigma. Salary in the Private sector ranges from INR 4000-6500/month. This salary is not even sufficient to take care of interest payments of loans for education in nursing that amount on an average to INR 6000/month. The study also reveals that Private hospitals’ salary is much lower than Public’s. The nurse to patient ratio is very low and their work increases manifold. They are ill-treated by doctors and the management. Patients tend to verbally abuse them. They have a low social standing because of handling body fluids many facing rejections from their prospective in-laws.
