    I would like to start a private nurses bureau in Vadodara Gujarat. Can you please let me know as to how I can register with the state government and what are the other things required for the same. ( Private nurse is the one who gives care to the patient in the hospital one on one basis and is paid for a day/ night shift) Like other big cities who run bureau with a number of nurses who are sent to the selected hospitals for patients. Only for care in the hospital.
