A poster is going viral on social media. Through which it is being claimed that the Government of India has recognized B.Sc Nursing as equivalent to MBBS. It is written in the poster that B.Sc nursing staff will be treated the equivalent to the doctors with MBBS degree.
Twitter user Dr. Subrata K Soren shared a circular and wrote that congratulations to my fellow MBBS doctors that your knowledge is equivalent to BSC Nursing.
To verify the viral claim, the DFRAC team reverse-searched the viral poster. During this, we got to see one such poster on the official Twitter account of the Ministry of Health. Describing the poster as fake, it was said that #FakeNews This document seems to be circulating on some social media platforms. This is a fake document. Please don’t share it further. #MedicalEducation
Hence, it is clear from DFRAC’s fact check that the viral poster is fake. BSc Nursing has not been made equivalent to MBBS by the Government of India.
