Pune: In spite of eight rounds of admissions, many seats are vacant in Bachelors of Science (BSc) for Nursing faculty which has paved way for candidates who have not taken National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) to be eligible to seek admission in private colleges.

The State government has opened seats for aspirants of BSc Nursing who have passed out of Class 12 and have not appeared for NEET this year.
