Greetings & WelcomeKnow More About Us

The Directorate General of Nursing and Midwifery (DGNM) is the central body and focal point from which all activities relating to public sector nursing in Bangladesh are managed. This includes all involved in nursing and midwidery education and practices. Though regulation of nursing education and practice is the responsibility of the Bangladesh Nursing and Midwifery Council (BNMC), the BNMC works closely with the DGNM in regulating nursing and midwifery services.

The DGNM has similar responsibilities in terms of executive authority to other Directorates under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW). The DNS is a member of most policy-making committees at national level relating to health services and education within the public sector.

The DGNM is one of the four current Directorates within the MoHFW. It is the highest body for managing the overall administration of public sector nursing services and education in Bangladesh. Its main responsibilities are:

  • National nursing policy development and application
  • Strategic and operational planning
  • Operational plan delivery, budget management and procurement as required
  • Nurse and non-nurse employee administration, including appointments, promotions, transfers
  • Pre-service and in-service educational planning and management: Nursing Institutes and Nursing Colleges
  • Planning and management of development projects
  • Annual awards for best performance in nursing education and services
  • Coordination with BNC
  • Collaboration and coordination with other directorates, Ministries, national and international organizations
