The mission of the nursing education program is to provide quality education to the nursing students enabling them to function effectively as nurses in Somalia/Somaliland. We seek to contribute to the advancement of nursing practice in Somaliland/Somalia, specifically focusing on community health care. It is our desire to collaborate with the academic community and to facilitate the integration of knowledge into practice, supporting initial and ongoing nursing education programs. This would involve supporting clinical practice through research by application, integration and dissemination of nursing knowledge.

The nursing students will become self directed learners through the use of self assessment, self reflection, self evaluation, effective time management and critical thinking. Nursing students will become effective communicators who understand the factors that influence communication and use professional com-munication skills. Nursing students will become critical thinkers who define prob-lems, select relevant information for prob-lem solving, recognize assumptions, for-mulate relevant hypothesis, make inter-pretations from data and who evaluate arguments.
Nursing students will become growing professionals with a strong knowledge base who provide, promote, facilitate the best possible professional services, and who are involved in con-tinuing education, take responsibility for their own professionalism and are ac-countable for their actions. The program will help them acquire a range of profes-sional nursing skills that will enable them to work in a variety of settings, such as MCH clinic, outpatient clinics, community education programs and in hospitals. Upon graduation, students will have a final general nursing competence examination proctored by external examiners.
