Dear Colleagues, Students, and Members of
The College of Nursing at
Sultan Qaboos University is an exceptional place to pursue nursing education.
Since its establishment in
2008 as an independent, the College of Nursing was envisioned to be a leading
college in the region in areas of nursing education, service and research. In
the College of Nursing, we believe that truly successful organizations in the
service of humanity are built on deep commitment to excellence and strategic
partnerships. It is in this belief that drives our mission to actively
participate in meeting the needs, shaping, and advancing healthcare in the
Sultanate of Oman.
Today, as a result of years
of quality and excellent work, many remarkable achievements have been
accomplished that made the College of Nursing a reputable destination in the
region for quality nursing education. The
college was the first to establish a
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
in the Sultanate of Oman. In 2015, the program was internationally
recognized and accredited by the prestigious
Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing ( ACEN).
In 2016, we started the first and the only
Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)
in Oman specializing in Adult Acute Care Nursing.
We are looking forward to expanding our program to include other specialties.
Recently (October, 2016), we have been granted the Excellence Award for
Distinguished Academic Institution by the
Scientific Society of Arab Nursing Faculties
Dr. Omar Al
Rawajfah, PhD, RN
Dean, College of Nursing
We draw students from the very best from every region in Oman. Our students are taught and mentored to become professional nurses and nursing leaders by a diverse team of compassionate and experienced staff and faculty members who possess expertise in clinical service, administration, nursing education, and research.
Our academic programs emphasize critical elements of professional nursing practice. As a result, we produce nurses who are able to practice in dynamic clinical environments in an ethical, safe, and culturally-sensitive manner. The teaching and learning processes in the College of Nursing use innovative student-centered learning methods, such as simulation. This leads students to value safety, evidence-based practice, and creativity. Our graduates are highly sought out for their abilities to integrate evidence-based practice and use of clinical technologies in nursing care.
In the College of Nursing, we are committed to developing the Omani nursing faculty workforce. To fulfill this commitment, we will be ready to welcome back and directly engage our sponsored graduate students abroad to be new Omani faculty. The college plans to continue sponsoring more Omani nurses to pursue their graduate studies, especially for areas of specialization with shortage of Omani faculty.
As Dean of the College of Nursing, it is my pleasure to welcome you as a partner and I invite you to learn more about us by browsing our website.
