School of Nursing & Midwifery

Schools of Nursing and Midwifery

Aga Khan University is a pioneer in nursing education. 

Recognising the vital lifeline nurses provide to any health care system, AKU established the first professional nursing programme in Pakistan over 30 years ago.

Today, AKU continues to lead the way in East Africa and Pakistan, offering undergraduate and graduate programmes as well as conversion and professional and continuing education courses.

AKU makes it easier for nursing professionals, like you, to access international standards of nursing education, upgrade your skills and build new knowledge. ​​​​​​​​​​​


Our mission is to support research that contributes to the global body of knowledge and advances public policy in response to the real needs of communities and people.
