Nursing department is one of the  thirteen departments under the faculty of health sciences with a vision of being  a world class school of Nursing in service of humanity. Our mission is to offer quality nursing education, undertake cutting edge research in health and to extend our services to the communities we serve.

The department was established in 2006 with two teaching staff and less than fifty students. The department has grown tremendously such that we now have nine teaching staff and around three hundred students.

The programs offered are Diploma in Nursing(In-service), Bachelor of Science in Nursing(In-service via Work-based mode) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing(Pre-service via Full-time mode). In our quest to offer market-driven programs, the department is currently reviewing the Diploma in Nursing program with the view of incorporating Pre-service students. The department has also presented a draft Master of Science in Nursing curriculum for discussion and onward transmission.

The department has eleven highly motivated and efficient staff; nine being lecturers, a clerk and a secretary. The department enjoys other facilities in the faculty of health sciences such as the Resource Center, the library and the Skills Laboratory. With the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the university and the Rift valley Provincial Hospital-Nakuru our students are exposed to real life clinical challenges and situation in the effort to bridge the gap between the theory and practice. The department also enjoys the blessing and  good working relationship with the nursing regulatory body, the Nursing Council of Ke

The department envisages itself as a fully-fledged school running several of its departments autonomously but under the College of Health Sciences.
