Service to humanity
The goal of Nursing over the years has been to contribute to the health of individuals and the entire society. Initially, nursing had concentrated on the care and comfort of the ill and injured, but as a result of advances in health sciences, the emphasis is now placed on protective, preventive and rehabilitative care.
The Basic Nursing education Programme is therefore geared towards the learning needs of students, health needs of the community and society. The Programme forms the basis for the practice of nursing and continuing education in the discipline of nursing.
