The Faculty of Nursing, established in September 2006, is dedicated to safe, ethical practice, honesty and integrity, collaboration and teamwork, leadership and management, and scientific research. Therefore, graduating competent, caring nursing professionals prepared to address multiple and complex human needs, as part of the interdisciplinary team, in an ever-changing environment is the school's slogan.
The Faculty offers a Bachelor in Nursing program, initiated in 2006, and a Master's program in Chronic Care Nursing, established at the beginning of 2018-2019. The latter is distinctive, with 15 students enrolled in the inaugural year. These programs are accredited by Jordan's Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission for Higher Education Institutions. International accreditation by commissions such as the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) likewise aspires.
The Faculty of Nursing is a pioneer in Competency-based Education. The professional competencies stemmed from the National Competency and Standards Framework initiated by the Jordanian Nursing Council to formulate the general framework of the nursing programs. This framework focuses on critical thinking, continuous quality improvement, evidence-based practice, and leadership in an ever-changing environment.
While striving for international recognition, the Faculty is continuously engaged in initiatives with community and academic partners and partnerships and committees that involve national and international agencies and hospitals to provide students with quality clinical experiences.
In addition to Jordanian students, alumni of the Bachelor in Nursing program are about 500 graduates from many countries, including Oman, Kuwait, Palestine, and Nigeria. The percentage of graduates who passed the licensure exam of the Jordanian Nursing Council is about 87%.
