National Service Scheme is an Indian Government sponsored programme under the Department of Youth Affairs & Sports of the Government of India. It was launched in Gandhiji’s Centenary year, 1969, aimed at “Developing Student’s Personality through Community Service”.

                      The NSS Unit of Vignesh Nursing College was started in the year 2008 with an aim to involve the students in social service programs for personality development and to provide service to the society without any prejudice.

  NSS unit:
                      The advisory committee members met together and planned the activities for the whole year under the guidance of Chairperson Dr.S.Vijayalakshmi, NSS Programme Officer Mr. V. Poovaraghavan and Asst. NSS Programme Officer Mrs. Udhaya. The advisory committee meets regularly to plan and discuss about various activities.

        Z   To practice national integration and social harmony

  The Motto:

                                  The motto or watchword of the National Service Scheme is: ‘NOT ME BUT YOU’. This reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service and appreciation of the other person’s point of view and also to show consideration for fellow human beings. It underlines that the welfare of an individual is ultimately dependent on the welfare of society on the whole. Therefore, it should be the aim of the NSS to demonstrate this motto in its day-to-day programme

  NSS Symbol:

                                  The symbol of the National Service Scheme, as appearing on the cover page of this Manual is based on the ‘Rath’ wheel of the Konark Sun Temple situated in Orissa. These giant wheels of the Sun Temple portray the cycle of creation, preservation and release, and signify the movement in life across time and space. The design of the symbol, a simplified form of the Sun-chariot wheel primarily depicts movement. The wheel signifies the progressive cycle of life. It stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social transformation and upliftment.

  NSS Badge:

                                  The NSS symbol is embossed on the NSS badge. The NSS volunteers wear it while undertaking any programme of community service. The Konark wheel in the symbol has eight bars which represent the 24 hours of the day. Hence, the badge reminds the wearer to be in readiness for service of the nation round the clock i.e. for 24 hours. The red colour in the badge indicates that the NSS volunteers are full of blood i.e. lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit. The navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of the mankind.

  NSS Day:

                                  NSS was formally launched on 24th September, 1969, the birth centenary year of the Father of the Nation. Therefore, 24 September is celebrated every year as NSS Day with appropriate programmes and activities.

  Activities OF NSS:

                                   Z   There are two types of activities (Regular Camp & special Camp) to be conducted in the rural and urban community

                                   Z   All the activities should be focused towards achieving the objectives of NS
