The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.Sc.N.) program combines theory and practice to prepare nurses to work in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, schools and communities. Nurses have many career choices, such as providing health care to people of all ages, educating patients, and working in administration or research. The career opportunities are excellent, since there is a shortage of nurses in the UAE and worldwide. The Department of Nursing in the College of Health Sciences offers two streams in undergraduate nursing program: a four-year stream for high school graduates and a Bridging/ Post-diploma stream for registered nurses with a diploma in nursing. The latter may be done on a full-time or a part time basis.
