Post RN Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Post RN BScN)

School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM) is the first nursing school of Pakistan to offer Post RN BScN programme. Since its launch in 1988, we have graduated 974 students who previously had a nursing diploma and got an opportunity to earn a Bachelor’s degree. At present, about 73 Registered Nurses (RNs) are enrolled with us in this programme. ​

Accelerate your Nursing Career from RN to BScN

The Post RN BScN programme is designed to recognize and build on the previous education of qualified RNs. It helps them acquire advanced professional competencies required to take up nurse leader positions as they move ahead in their career. A wide variety of career choices opens up to the graduates of this programme, ranging from clinical practice areas to opportunities in research as well as in the academia. 

It is a two-year programme and is extremely flexible as it allows the RNs to enroll as full-time, part-time or work-based students, enabling them to study alongside their existing work commitments. 


At SONA​​M, 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. Our students have got it all under one roof!
