THE NURSING HONOR SOCIETY OF INDIA AND HALL OF FAME: Is getting re-established this year.
BACKGROUND – Dr Suwersh Khanna writes…..
Mrs. Cherian was USA and came in New York and stayed with me. At that time, we had our first induction on July 8 th, 1988. She witnessed the whole event and gave vote of thanks to the founder and to the executive members of this most important timely needed Venture to establish such a prestigious society which had existing from more than a century in other professions.
She was unconditionally supportive of us for this venture. The initial regular members were four and associate members were eight.

I have inserted it here in its original form
With this background from Sue Khanna, I am adding here my observations and plans:
Nursing Honor Society of India (NHSI) was founded by Dr Suwersh Khanna in 1987. Dr Khanna got it registered in US and conducted its annual program of conferring HALL OF FAME and INDUCTION CEREMONY till 2001. A number of Indian Nurses received certificates of induction and Hall Of Fame under this society.
Initially the society was registered for five years and as told by Sue Khanna, because the registration was not renewed, no further programs were conducted.
Now, Dr Khanna desired that someone should revive this society and get it freshly registered in India. I, Dr Usha Ukande, President of Nursing Research Society of India, agreed to take this responsibility and started the process of registering the founder members, writing the bye-laws afresh and getting it registered under Society’s act.
Once the society gets registered, the induction ceremony and giving Hall of Fame certificate to selected Nursing Leaders will be done every year during the Nursing Research Society of India’s Annual National/ International Conferences as was done earlier. If all the formalities of registration will be completed by November this year, the NHSI will hold its induction ceremony this year in Kolkata where NRSI’s Annual National Conference is going to be held in last week of November’2018.
Details of NHSI will be put on NRSI website as a link, after it gets registered.
