UOWD launches 2 new nursing degrees to support rising demand for clinical professionals in UAE's booming healthcare sector

Accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education, the new programs are in sync with Dubai’s ambitious plans to attract 500,000 medical tourists annually by 2020

Dubai, UAE, 20 December 2018:   The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) is launching two nursing-related degree programs to support the anticipated growth and diversification in the UAE healthcare sector.

Accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs, the Bachelor of Nursing bridging program and the Master of Nursing program have been designed to address the rising demand for qualified clinical professionals in UAE.  

With an ever-increasing expatriate population, coupled with the statutory requirement for health insurance, it is predicted that the UAE healthcare sector will witness exponential growth in the coming years. The goal of attracting 500,000 medical tourists to Dubai annually by 2020 is also expected to drive diversification in the needs and expectations of patient care.

The new programs will provide nurses currently practicing, or those planning to practice in the UAE, with nationally accredited qualifications that meet the educational and professional requirements of the UAE health authorities.

The Bachelor of Nursing (Bridging) program is open to candidates that hold a recognised diploma in nursing and are Registered Nurses looking to retain their licence to practice in the UAE. Graduates of the two-year program will get a Bachelor of Nursing qualification that is required to work as a Registered Nurse in UAE.  

The Master of Nursing program is targeted at experienced nursing professionals looking to advance their career into strategic roles or to pursue continuing professional development through postgraduate studies. 

Dr Feras Hamza, Head of the School of Humanities, Social Sciences and Health said, “We are delighted to be introducing degree programs in nursing at a time when the UAE is entering a new era in healthcare provision. Our aim is to support this growth by increasing capacity in the nursing sector through industry-relevant professional development, underpinned by accredited academic practices.”     

The new programs will be launched in Spring of 2019. Applications for admission are now open.
