Post RM Bachelor of Science in Midwifery (Post RM BScM)
AKU’s School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM) is the only school in Pakistan to offer this unique midwifery programme. Since 2013, we have graduated about 35 midwives every alternate year who are now providing comprehensive care to women and their families. Our midwifery students get hands-on experience as they work in real health care settings with women during their pregnancy, childbirth and early newborn care stages.
Our midwifery graduates are currently working in different capacities ranging from home-birth practitioners, technical advisors to educators and clinical practitioners in various private and government health care units as well as Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
Developing your Midwifery Career
The midwifery programme at SONAM is designed to give students a comprehensive overview to the concepts and care needed in child-bearing cycle in both normal and complicated scenarios. You will also learn in detail about the early childhood development to be able to effectively deliver a holistic care.
As part of the programme, you will get an opportunity to collaborate and work with other health care providers in different health care settings including maternal, new-born and child health clinical areas. This means that you will be applying your knowledge and skills in the midwifery practice throughout the perinatal period while you study.
The School offers flexible programmes; you can either enroll in our two-year fulltime programme or a three/four-year part-time programme.
At SONAM, our focus is on enriching and expediting the nursing experience of our students; from education to practice. The curricula for all our undergraduate and graduate programmes are benchmarked internationally and are designed to feature our state-of-the-art simulation lab, blended learning or e-learning methodology, clinical practice (in-house and in various community settings) and local and international internship opportunities.
