About SONAM

Pioneer in Nursing Education Since 1980

The Aga Khan University’s School of Nursing enjoys the privilege of being the first nursing institution in Pakistan to be affiliated with a University. The School has grown tremendously over the past four decades, and after the launch of the midwifery programme, it was renamed the School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM). 

With a reputation for delivering excellence in the areas of education, research, practice and administration, the School is committed to preparing the next generation of leaders in the profession.

Internationally Benchmarked Programmes

SONAM aspires to become a regional centre of excellence in the field. Aligned with this vision, the School has developed several strategic academic partnerships with leading nursing and midwifery schools in the USA, UK, Canada, Sweden, Portugal and Belgium. These partnerships allow the School to not only bring international expertise in developing innovative curricula and evidence-based pedagogies but, also offer higher education opportunities to its faculty members and students. 

Renowned Faculty

The School has the honour of having the largest proportion of PhDs of any other nursing schools in Pakistan. Its faculty has a diverse educational and professional experience from Pakistan, USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Sweden and Italy. The work produced by our researchers is constantly published in multidisciplinary, high-impact journals. ​​
