Welcome to our School, Uganda Nursing School Bwindi-UCU affiliate. A health training institution, for nurses and midwives.

At Uganda Nursing School – Bwindi (UNSB), we have high expectations to help all students learn and grow into well-rounded professional nurses and critical thinkers.

As stated in our vision, we are always working hard to solve the health challenges within the community through innovation. We therefore introduced obstetric sonography and Family planning as added courses to our nursing program. The acquired sonography skills help our students to diagnose multiple gestations and placenta Previa and other abnormalities in lower health facilities countrywide, and refer mothers to facilities that can offer emergency obstetric care; this contributes to the reduction in maternal death. Our graduates are also able to offer family planning services to clients in turn reduce the unmet need of family planning.

We will continue to offer such innovations that give our students rewarding learning experiences.
