School of Nursing and Midwifery, SONAM, is the first academic unit of the Aga Khan University in Pakistan. Founded in 1980, the School has led the way in introducing new academic programmes in nursing and midwifery that prepare students using a blended learning curriculum and simulation-based training at the University’s Centre for Innovation in Medical Education.

SONAM’s collaborations with several public and private sector institutions, regulatory bodies and federations, and NGOs within Pakistan and across the globe have enabled us to bring a diverse pool of expertise and to improve nursing and midwifery education and practice within the country. Our graduates go on to join diverse teams of clinical experts, researchers, academicians and policymakers and are able to make an impact on the healthcare landscape.
