UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH & ALLIED SCIENCES: Nursing and Midwifery

The School of Nursing and Midwifery (SONAM), a constituent school of the University of Health and Allied Sciences since its inception in 2012, remains one of the leading avenues for the promotion of Nursing and Midwifery education. Coupled with this mandate of fostering Nursing and Midwifery education is the focus on the development of competent practical based and research-oriented nurses and midwives for the overall advancement of the noble professions of Nursing and Midwifery.

Poised to deliver on its mandate of providing higher education in the Nursing and Midwifery Sciences through teaching and research for candidates aptly qualified and capable of benefiting from such education, SONAM currently offers three Bachelor’s degrees from the school’s three departments of Nursing, Midwifery and Public Health Nursing. These degrees are offered through the regular programme, sandwich and diploma-to-degree (top-up) programmes. In the near future, the school hopes to develop graduate and post graduate programmes to better advance Nursing and Midwifery education.

SONAM has ongoing collaborations with York University, Canada (for capacity building in PhD & preceptor training); Yonsei University, South Korea (for Curriculum development in Public Health Nursing & Clinical / Vocational Training); University of Basel, Switzerland; and EU-HITA (Healthcare Information Technology for Africa) Project, Germany (for m-learning and e-learning innovations in Nursing).
