Bachelor of Science in Nursing
AKU's School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM) is the first University-affiliated nursing school in Pakistan to offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) programme that started in 1997.
Our four-year BScN programme blends solid academic preparation, innovative teaching methods and hands-on clinical experiences to enable you to provide holistic care for individuals.
Upon completion, the graduates get an opportunity to enter the nursing profession as intern nurses. Following this one-year internship, they become eligible to appear in a mandatory licensure examination by the Pakistan Nursing Council (PNC), clearing which they qualify for a license to practice as professional nurses.
At SONAM, we focus on producing leaders who are trusted to be the best in their field and are able to make an impact in the healthcare landscape.
Our programmes are recognised for their internationally benchmarked quality, innovation and affordability. Our students learn in a blended learning environment with a combination of face-to-face and online teaching and learning modules. They also get simulator training at the University's Centre for Innovation in Medical Education and a chance to work in hospitals as well as community-based healthcare settings as part of their clinical rotations.
