The vision of the Nursing programme from University of Kwazulu Natal is to establish itself as a centre of excellence in Nursing and Midwifery education in Africa and the rest of the World.


The Nursing programme at University of Kwazulu Natal enjoys good working relationships with other international partners with whom Memoranda Of Understanding have been signed for collaboration.
