The School of Nursing and Midwifery’s Uganda campuses are committed to offering a coordinated response to the increasing need for health sector reform in the country. In Uganda, our School of Nursing and Midwifery’s alumni hold key leadership positions in government, clinics, hospitals, schools, universities, government and other institutions. 45% of our recent Ugandan graduates work in the public sector. We admit students based on merit, not ability to pay. AKU heavily subsidizes its academic programmes and provides scholarships to 9 out of 10 of its students in East Africa.

Our programmes are based on a work-study format which enables students to continue with practice as they learn. With our broad offering of nursing programmes, the School aims to improve nursing and midwifery education, policy, practice and research to improve patient care in Uganda. This constant culture of innovation and research is a source of continued excellence in the nursing and midwifery fields.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery has various partnerships in place to ensure that our nursing programmes are more accessible to working nurses and midwives in Uganda. It is through these external partnerships that we can guarantee continued support for healthy futures in Uganda.​​
