The objective of the proposal is to establish a nursing college in every district in which the proposed new medical college is said to be established. The Telangana government has proposed to set up nine new medical colleges across the state in Nirmal, Asifabad, Bhupalpally, Jangaon, Kamareddy, Karimnagar, Khammam, Sircilla and Vikarabad districts.
