History

Back

The School of Nursing (SON) was established in 1978 as the Department of Nursing Education under the Faculty of Education. The school started with an in-service Bachelor of Educationprogramme initially meant to prepare nurse educators for the then National Health Institute (now Institutes of Health Sciences). In 2000, the programme started enrolling pre-service students; and in 1996, the first Master of Nursing Science students were enrolled. In 2007, when the Faculty of Health Science (FHS) was established, the School of Nursing moved from the Faculty of Education to become part of the FHS.
