In the United States, this diploma is usually awarded by hospital-based nursing schools. Students awarded a Diploma in Nursing are qualified to take the NCLEX-RN exam and apply for licensure as a Registered Nurse.

At one time, all nurses in the United States were diploma-prepared. The Cherry Ames series of children's books was created to encourage girls to go into the nursing profession during World War II. She was a "hospital diploma" nurse.[1]

Although the number of hospital-based nursing schools continues to decrease, many still exist. Some require that non-nursing prerequisite courses be completed at another school prior to admission or coordinate their program with classes at a nearby school, though many are still self-contained.

Nurses in other countries may also have diplomas, such as Practical Nurses in Canada, which complete a 2-3 diploma equivalent or greater in length to an associate degree in nursing completed the United States.

In India, this type of diploma is awarded by hospital-based nursing schools as well as by the hospitals based on the 'Experience' of a person in this field. Also, in India, a Nursing degree/diploma is awarded by the Government Nursing Colleges affiliated to some of the Universities in India preferably Health Universities. In Maharashtra state of India, the Health University is situated at Nashik.[2] All the Medical colleges in Maharashtra state of India are governed by this Health University.
