Message from the HOD
Dear students, I welcome you all to the Department of Nursing, Faculty of Health Sciences, National Open University of Nigeria.
Nursing has evolved as a care-practice profession with a body of knowledge that requires a sound science base (basic, applied and social), liberal arts education and dexterity in clinical skills.
Our programme focuses on upgrading the knowledge and competencies of our students to function as professional nurses with a solid science base that is highly competitive, compared to others anywhere in the world. Graduates from NOUN’s BNSc degree programme have a high potential for challenging, rewarding and flexible careers in all health care and community settings, social services, educational settings, etc, within and outside government, including non-governmental organisations.
By choosing to study at NOUN, you have set yourself on a path to acquire desirable knowledge, attitudes and skills to prepare you for better practices and a fulfilling career in Nursing.
Bachelor of Nursing Science
The Bachelor of Nursing Science Degree (BNSc) of the National Open University is a response to the need to enhance access to university education for many nurses in clinical practice who may not be able to leave their job for higher-level education despite the professional demand for such. The aim of the programme is to advance the education of nurses for modern-day nursing practice, for higher-level performance and capacity for projection into the future as the graduates function to meet health promotion and healthcare needs of individuals along the life span within a family framework and with motivation for self-directed learning and professional growth.
