Al Jazeera first brought you the story of Narayana Health in 2012 - a hospital on the outskirts of Bangalore, India's third largest city.

Narayana is a place where both rich and poor Indians come to seek affordable medical care, something almost non-existent in a country of over a billion people.

As part of our continuing coverage of the facility, we have returned to India after two years.

This is a web exclusive report of Narayana's unique nurse intensivist course, which aims to elevate nurses to function on par with the hospital's doctors.

Indian Hospital Revisited, a special two-part interactive addition to our original series, can be seen on March 13 and March 20, 2014, at the following times GMT: Thursday: 2000; Friday: 1200; Saturday: 0100; Sunday: 0600; Monday: 2000; Tuesday: 1200; Wednesday: 0100
