The University of Calgary in Qatar (UCQ) has announced its annual call for applications from Qatari nationals and residents of Qatar to its Bachelor of Nursing and Master of Nursing programmes.
Applicants are required to submit their application to the university before March 1, 2018. UCQ is an accredited, Canadian university and Qatar’s sole institution for nursing education.
“Our mission at the University of Calgary in Qatar is to educate and train nurses who can help improve health outcomes and patient care locally,” said Dr Deborah White, dean and CEO of UCQ. Those interested in applying are invited to visit the campus and attend UCQ’s Open House on November 18, (from 11am to 1pm). Prospective students and their families will be given the opportunity to meet with professors and UCQ’s management, as well as tour the university’s classrooms and training facilities,
according to a statement.
UCQ’s Student Services office will also help guide applicants through the application process.
UCQ alumna Noof Fahad al-Kuwari (’14), clinical nurse in Paediatric Surgery, Sidra Medicine, reflected on her experience at UCQ by saying, “The university gave me the education and skills to make a positive impact on the healthcare system of my country. Nurses are a vital part of any hospital or clinic and this is a responsibility I take very seriously. I am grateful the University of Calgary in Qatar prepared me so well for this important role.”
UCQ’s Bachelor of Nursing (BN) programme is a four-year course of study that prepares students to become Qatar’s future nursing leaders. Students gain practical and theoretical experience and instruction from UCQ’s professors, who bring a range of academic and clinical expertise. Graduates of the BN programme go on to careers in community health, primary care centres, hospitals and academia.
The Master of Nursing (MN) programme is an advanced degree designed to enhance the leadership and management skills of nurses already in the workforce. A two-year programme requiring a full-time work release, UCQ’s MN programme focuses on preparing nurses in Qatar to make a lasting impact in their chosen fields. Specializations include oncology, leadership and thesis-based tracks.
