Introduction

The School of Nursing and Public Health is the “mother school” of all schools in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Veterinary Medicine. The School started on 1 January 1986 when nursing was taken up in the stream of higher education from a hospital-based education.

 

Nursing is a noble profession for anyone who has the desire to care for the sick and needy in hospital and an opportunity to prevent illness in communities. Nurses are needed in all corners of the country and can operate in absence of other health care professionals. The attributes of an excellent nurse are compassion, competence, caring, conscience and confidence.

 

A nurse is the only member of the health team who is in contact with the patient for 24hrs a day and is therefore the glue that keeps the entire health professions team together.
