Principal's Message

Dear UNSB stakeholders/partners,

It is my pleasure to address you and share some important updates and highlights from our institution. Our primary goal is to provide excellent nursing education and training top notch nurses and midwives, while continuously striving for innovation and research in our services.

First and foremost, we would like to express our gratitude to our stakeholders, including the Benefactors, Ministry of Health, local government, and community members, for their unwavering support and cooperation. Your assistance has been invaluable in helping us achieve our mission and vision.

We have implemented several initiatives aimed at enhancing the quality of education and training we provide to our students. These include:

Expanding our curriculum to include ultra sound sonography. This is to equip our students providing antenatal care to be able to offer sonographic services to timely identify a baby with any condition and advise the mother about the safest intervention and reducing on maternal and infant mortality within our country.

Implementing innovative teaching methods, such as interactive lectures, case-based learning, and simulated clinical experiences. These approaches have been proven to improve student engagement, critical thinking skills, and clinical competence.

Strengthening our partnerships with local hospitals and healthcare facilities and international universities and other nursing schools to provide our students with practical, hands-on experience in a real-world setting. This has been instrumental in helping our students develop the necessary skills and confidence to excel in their careers.

Offering scholarships and financial assistance programs to some of the needy students. We believe that a diverse student body enriches the learning experience for everyone.

We are proud to report that our efforts have been successful in improving the overall performance of our students and graduates. Many of our alumni have gone on to excel in their careers, making significant contributions to the healthcare sector in Uganda and beyond.

As we continue to grow and evolve, we remain committed to working closely with our stakeholders to address the changing needs of the nursing profession. We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how we can further improve our programs and services to better serve our students, patients, and communities.

Thank you once again for your unwavering support and we look forward to our ongoing partnership.

Robert Kamugisha – Principal
