Department of Nursing Sciences


Within the framework of the Constitution of South Africa and the vision and mission statement of the University of Johannesburg and the Faculty of Health Sciences, we strive toward quality nursing education, research and community development, in a symbiotic relationship with one another. The availability of highly skilled and qualified staff will be supported by the appropriate use of technologically-based learning opportunities that demonstrate flexibility, accessibility, mobility and responsiveness to changing needs, with diverse academic support. The mission of the School of Nursing Sciences is to develop through quality education, a competent nurse practitioner to meet the diverse and rapidly changing health needs of the South African society within the context of transformation, collaboration, partnership, diversity, equity, non-discrimination, and a diverse learner profile. Such a practitioner will reflect lifelong learning skills, career management skills, and professional and personal empowerment to function in a global society.
