MAC Nursing Education has its roots in the Multipurpose Health Workers (Female) Course started in 1983 with the Voluntary Health Services Hospital as its base hospital.

MA Chidambaram School of Nursing (MACSON)

MACSON commenced its flagship 3½ year Diploma in Nursing and Midwifery course in 2001. It is approved by the Tamilnadu Government and recognized by both the Tamilnadu Nurses and Midwives Council and the Indian Nursing Council.

Each year, MACSON admits students to the diploma course from among higher secondary school pass-outs from recognized boards of India.

MACSON diplomates form the first line of nursing support to the healthcare sector, often manning primary health centres, small hospitals and nursing homes, polyclinics and corporate hospitals across India. Some of them have found gainful employment in West Asia, Europe and in the United States.

Some exceptional diplomates go on to study further and hone their nursing skills and knowledge to strengthen nursing academies.

The MAC (Educational) Foundation proposes to expand the MACSON network to other locations.
