SCHOOL OF NURSING AND MIDWIFERY, EAST AFRICA
The School of Nursing and Midwifery’s East Africa campuses are committed to offering a coordinated response to the increasing need for health sector reform in the region. Since its inception in 2000, the school has seen 2,388 graduates join the ranks of innovative, qualified, working nurses and midwives in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
We are one of the pioneers of the Advanced Practice Nursing (APN) and Advanced Practice Midwifery (APM) programmes as well as formalized undergraduate degrees for nurses and midwives in the region. Additionally, our programmes are based on a work-study format which enables students to continue with practice as they learn. With our broad offering of nursing programmes, the School aims to improve nursing and midwifery education, policy, practice and research to improve patient care in East Africa. This constant culture of innovation and research is a source of continued excellence in the nursing and midwifery fields.
The School of Nursing and Midwifery has various partnerships in place to ensure that our nursing programmes are more accessible to working nurses and midwives in the region. It is through these external partnerships that we can guarantee continued support for healthy futures in East Africa.
