Karnataka Nursing Council International Verification Process and Documents Required

Students who studied nursing in Karnataka need to get Karnataka Nursing Council Verification, as they start to work as nurses in different countries.

Recently, I did the KNC international verification process for my nephew in US. The  process is similar for other countries like Australia, UK,Ireland, New Zealand, Canada etc. The information is not readily available about verification process. So I am writing this to help those who are outside of India to get the verification done at Karnataka Nursing Council office at Bangalore.
