It is our mission to develop and provide nursing education and training of the highest degree of excellence in serving the needs of the South African community.  We are committed to excellence of service to our students, our contracted hospitals, stakeholders and the community.  We are committed to providing these services with integrity and compassion.

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of UKWAZI SCHOOL OF NURSING is anchored in the belief that nursing education should prepare students to function safely and effectively as nursing practitioners.  We believe that nursing education should provide students an opportunity to progress within a laddered curriculum in order to enhance the profession of nursing and to serve as a foundation for life-long learning.  Nurses should be prepared to provide ethical, holistic and compassionate care to diverse populations in a variety of settings. We feel that our vision and mission can best be accomplished by incorporating into our curriculum the standards set forth by our regulatory, quality assuring and governing bodies as well as evidenced-based research provided by colleagues and industry.
