At the vanguard of our changing health care system is nursing.
This program aims to develop a professional nurse who is able to assume entry-level positions in health facilities or community settings while building a strong sense of professional and clinical competence to thrive in various health care settings. We train our future nurses to study critically, make informed decisions with scientific evidence, work collaboratively and creatively, and be innovative in interprofessional health care environments.
