Our Vision


To be the center of excellence for the preparation of safe, caring and competent nurse practitioners.

Our Mission


To produce safe, caring and competent nurse practitioners capable of providing quality and holistic care to clients in the hospital and community.

Our Philosophy


We believe that Man is a complex being with biological, psycho-social and spiritual needs, regardless of race, colour, creed, gender and age, who has the right to have access to quality healthcare and the means to assist him/her to fulfil his/her potential in life.

The essence of Nursing is caring for and caring about people as holistic beings in matters related to health promotion, health maintenance, health restoration and dying.

Nursing education is directed towards the personal and professional development of students through quality teaching-learning experiences, self-directed learning and continuing education.
