Uganda Nursing School Bwindi(UNSB) has today Monday, 15th January 2018 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with University of Scranton to facilitate staff and student exchanges, research collaboration as well as coming up with joint education programmes in the field of Nursing and Health Care. Dr Birungi Mutahunga, the Executive Director Bwindi Community Hospital signed on behalf of UNSB while Dr Charles Pinches signed on behalf of University of Scranton. “Our partnership with the University of Scranton is another step towards our vision vision 2025 of becoming a university,” said Dr Birungi. “The potential for joint programs and exchanges will greatly enhance the UNSB to continue producing top notch nurses in the region.”

Dr. Birungi Mutahunga signing an MOU as the School principal Jane Anyango looks on.


We recently on 11th March 2017 graduated 36 top notch nurses and midwives who are now working in Uganda and particularly with rural communities in Uganda. The graduates are reported to be very skilled and knowledgeable and pass the registration interviews with the nursing council highly. Above all the graduates from UNSB are able to apply both sonography (obstetric ultrasound) and nursing or midwifery skills to save lives and improve on health.

UNSB considers all students and treats them equally including those from the marginalized groups like Batwa pygmies trains them and builds the culture of health workers in them. No wonders the graduates are able to perform beyond expectations in the villages. We are happy that our very first graduation was graced by the First lady who is also the minister of Education and sports. She pointed out that health workers need to put the health of patients first.
