India has been forever plagued with incidents of deaths during childbirth, and thus it is in need of more skilled manpower so that every pregnant woman has assistance as soon as she reaches the hospital. This would increase the chances of less complicated childbirth and ensure the birth of a healthy child, not to mention the increased chances of life expectancy for both—the mother and the child. Amidst such dire circumstances, there is good news. The National Health Mission has declared that in the forthcoming exam that it would be conducting, it would be recruiting 10,158 candidates. The online application process had started from 18th December 2018 and would end on 7th January 2019.

There are a number of posts that the aspirants would be contesting for, and among them are:
ANM MH—For this post, the candidate must be a diploma holder in Auxiliary nursing and Midwife from a recognized institution that has been approved by the Nursing Council of the government and is affiliated to the State Nursing Council. This is a mandatory criterion and any candidate failing to produce original documents might face cancellation of candidature.
Staff Nurse CH—This post requires the candidates to have a diploma in General Nursing and experience as a midwife during his/her B. Sc. Course in Nursing from any of the government recognized institutes.
Staff Nurse MH—The aspirants for this post must hold a diploma in General Nursing and Midwifery and the certificate that he/she would obtain must be from a state recognized institute.
OT Technician, MH—The aspirants for this post must hold a relevant degree in instrumentation and have at least a one-year diploma certificate in computer application which would help him/her immensely in the workspace with all instruments becoming digitized with every passing day. Sound knowledge of computer applications would help him/her to get used to the new instruments faster so that they can be put to use soon after the institute invests in them.
Lab Technicians—The lab technicians for the NHM must hold the relevant degrees in microbiology or the other required subjects in order to be eligible for taking the exam.
The Examination Procedure
- To get through the NHM exam, the aspirant has to pass through three exams as a part of the recruitment process.
- The first part is the screening, then comes the written exam and the third part consists of document verification.
- One must keep in mind that all the details that the candidate had provided while filling in the application form online must be true, because a discrepancy at this stage might lead to the cancellation of candidature.
Let us now have a look at the syllabus for the NHM exam.
The Syllabus —Tough but Doable
The syllabus for the exam is not much different from the other competitive exams that candidates take all through the year. The first topic is domain knowledge, which means that considerable marks are devoted towards examining the actual knowledge the aspirant has.
This would be the primary criterion and the most important one, and it goes without saying that the candidate would have to score really well in this area in order to impress the examiners. Next comes the General English section. This is in no way less important because the aspirant might have to deal with official documents, and have to participate in board meetings that would require the candidate to be fluent and expressive.
This is why a sound knowledge of the English Language is a must for the aspirants, and they must prepare throughout the course of the year to get the hang of the English grammar so that he/she can deal with the trick questions that often confuse the candidates. The General Knowledge and Reasoning section would not be much difficult to handle if the candidate keeps a tab on the important events happening in the country and in the world. Reading the newspaper daily is a good way to keep things in mind and be aware of the current events. To be proficient in the Reasoning problems requires much practice on the part of the candidate, and he/she must work hard to learn this skill.
