THE PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY OF EAST AFRICA NURSING DEPARTMENT
MEDICAL BENEVOLENCE FOUNDATION PARTNERSHIP
This partnership is an initiative to enhance the Nursing Education. The nursing department has greatly benefitted from this partnership. The Presbyterian University of East Africa was given approval by Nursing Council of Kenya (NCK) to offer Kenya Registered Nursing (KRN) training on 2nd October 2009. Currently the School has five cohorts totaling to 98 students who are at different levels of their training.The most senior class i.e. September 2016 will sit for their NCK exams on 9th, 10th and 11th August 2016. The KRN program is being phased out gradually the last class being the March 2016 class. This is in accordance with the nursing council requirement of the University offering BScN degree program.
On Wednesday May 25th 2016, 26 students were awarded scholarship amounting to Kshs. 1,500,000. The money goes long way in settling the students’ fees of whom some have very huge fees balances. . There is goodwill from the MBF team to give more scholarship to the needy students. Several consultative meeting have been held between PUEA management team and the MBF on the way forward concerning the BScN programme. The BScN curriculum was presented on 12th July 2016 and has been approved by the Nursing Council of Kenya with few recommendations that are been considered. Soon, we shall be presenting it to Commission for University Education (CUE) for inspection and accreditation.
