The Nursing education in Bahrain started in 1959, and over the years, the Nursing Department at the College of Health Sciences has evolved to become a reputable training hub in the region. In 1990, it was designated as a “World Health Organization Collaborating Center (WHOCC) for Nursing Development”, the first such center in the Middle East. It was also selected as a member of the Executive Committee of the WHOCC network. Ever since its establishment, the CHS has endeavored to function as a center of excellence in nursing education.

Quality improvement has always been the primary concern of the department and the driving force behind its plans and activities. The Nursing Department at the CHS currently offers a range of programs: entry into practice Bachelor of Sciences in Nursing (BSN), bridging program for registered nurses (RN-BSN), and a number of post-RN specialty diploma programs covering Community Health, Midwifery, Psychiatric Nursing, Cardiac Nursing and Emergency Nursing. The increasing demand on nursing services throughout the country and the region has created practice opportunities within a variety of clinical settings. The Department has thus contributed significantly towards Bahrainization in this key sector.

The mission of the Nursing Department is to graduate high quality professional nurses who are accountable, reliable and capable of meeting international standards in providing nursing care in a variety of settings. Our faculty and graduates follow the professional code of ethics in a collaborative practice environment, and work in an environment of mutual respect, maintaining competence, seeking to improve nursing practice, and actively pursuing personal and professional development. The Department uses innovative and student-centered teaching models in order to empower students to be decision makers, problem solvers and critical thinkers.
