It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty of Nursing Science in Al Neelain University. Our Faculty offers undergraduate and postgraduate programs that prepare you for an exciting career in the health professions.
The School of Nursing Science was established in 2002, as part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences with 47 students and two postgraduate Programs. In 2013 the School of Nursing Science was upgraded to become the Faculty of Nursing Science. Now our Faculty is home to numerous postgraduate and graduate programs; to be exact we offer one undergraduate program and eight postgraduate programs. Our students have also grown more in number and diversity with a considerable number of our current 600 students’are internationals.
In our Nursing Faculty in Al Neelain University, we are committed to improving the health and quality of life of humanity by providing a Faculty who are committed to delivering high quality learning opportunities for students. The Faculty in each program are skilled practitioners who constantly strive for new ways to foster student learning and are respected in the community for their teaching, research, and service.
The students studying in our programs are given many opportunities to show their talent and brilliance, and are given a lot of support to help them succeed and thrive; this is because our programs are taught using the modified semester system, where 60% of the teaching time is spent in intensive clinical internships in general and sub-specialized hospitals in addition to community centers.
Alongside the co-curricular activities we also seek to provide an environment where the students can study, meet with friends, share meals, have offices of student organizations, join student clubs and participate in intramural sports or extracurricular activities.
As a nurse, your role may be clinical practitioner, administrator, teacher or researcher. You may practice in many settings, from hospital to home, in clinics or industry, to name just a few. You may also pursue graduate education. Our programs will prepare the student for positions in all areas of health care. Nursing is a vibrant and dynamic profession.
Nurses make a difference.
