The College prepares students for employment and professional development in the field of nursing. Nursing care is about providing quality patient care in public and private health entities. In the Kurdistan Region as well as in Iraq Prime there is a great need for a well-developed nursing sector within the health services. Furthermore there is a huge deficiency in the numbers of degree qualified nurses. The current lack of nurses has been derogatory to the quality of our health service. There is an urgent need for highly skilled nurses who can collaborate with members of the health care teams to provide health services with international standard.
Inspired by its mission of serving the local and regional community; the American University of Kurdistan has embarked on the opening of the College of Nursing to cater for the needs of the health service in the region and beyond. The aim is to graduate highly skilled nursing professionals to provide the best possible outcomes for our patients. The training of professional nurses in this college will be modelled according to highest standards of interdisciplinary nursing requirements followed in US universities.
The American University of Kurdistan is committed to working in partnership with the Department of Health in Duhok as well as universities, health and social care organizations in the US to provide solutions for the evolving needs of health services in Kurdistan and beyond.
