Regional Institute of Paramedical & Nursing Sciences (RIPANS), Aizawl was established in 1995-1996 under North Eastern Council (NEC). The Institute conducted the following courses from the academic year 1996.

             The above courses were run by few qualified teaching faculty and supporting staff initially. However, Govt. of Mizoram rendered necessary help and services in all possible ways including man power and infrastructure. RIPANS shall ever remain grateful to the Department of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Mizoram for donating us their prime land in Zemabawk (near Cancer Hospital) which is 39.60 Bighas. 

           The overall control and management of the Institute with all its assets and liabilities has also been transferred from NEC to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare from 1st April, 2007. Consequently, the present courses had all been consolidated to technical degree courses. Hence today, we have the following 5-degree courses and three Post Graduate courses, all affiliated to Mizoram University.

1) B.Sc (Nursing)

2) Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Technology

3) Bachelor of Pharmacy
