Post-RN Bachelor of Science in Nursing​​

AKU's School of Nursing and Midwifery (SON​AM) started its Post-RN Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Post-RN BScN) programme in 1988, which was the first of its kind in Pakistan.

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