Introduction

I am delighted to introduce the maiden issue of the Manipal Journal of Nursing and Health Sciences, to be released from the portals of Manipal College of Nursing (MCON) Manipal in its Silver Jubilee year. MCON occupies a coveted position in nursing education in India. It has marked its name in nursing research through valuable research contributions and publications. A scientific publication from our College of Nursing has been a long-awaited dream. I consider this as our contribution to health science/health research field.
