Nazareth Medical College History

Nazareth Medical College

The college was started in 2005 as an initiative of the Franciscan sisters of the immaculate Heart of Mary, with a mission of fostering professional nursing education and promoting excellence in nursing practice. The school has grown from offering a distance education program of upgrading enrolled nurses to offering a 3years basic diploma in Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing (K.R.C.H.N). The program is regionally and internationally recognized and prepares the student nurses to work efficiently in acute health care systems, obstetric and community settings. The college has since its inception embraced a culture of hard work, commitment and dedication to excellence. This is enhanced by the presence of a modern resource centre and a well equipped skills laboratory and Library.

Performance and activities.

We have presented 5 groups so far to the nursing council for their licensing examination and they have had exemplary performance, placing the college among the top 3 position countrywide for the five consecutive years.
