I am one of the establishment members in 2008.  It is one of the colleges among other colleges in Iraq and Kurdistan region has some unique characteristics; one of them is focusing on subspecialties in postgraduate studies. Our graduates at the bachelor's, master's levels are contributing to the development of the nursing and health services in this region, and our alumni are contributing to the Iraq and Kurdistan community in leadership, research, and entrepreneurial positions. 

I am with all faculty and administration staff are supporting students at all levels of studies to achieve their goals and participating in the development of the nursing profession and health care services in this country. We are also committed to educating future generations of health care providers to be pioneers in providing health care services.

Nurses who are holding bachelor's degrees are in high demand locally and globally. Hospitals, clinics, nursing care settings, and a variety of other clinical facilities now prefer nurses with bachelor’s degrees, especially those who have completed internships after graduation. We are preparing a nurse to be able to work in a variety of national and international health care settings. Hence, from 2018 college of nursing is implementing the Bologna process and our curriculum totally changed toward student centred learning in an autonomous environment.

Team working in the college of nursing to develop academic programs, practice, and research has carried us far along the path to success. Therefore, I am here to help, my colleagues, staff, and students to achieve a common vision – delivering innovative solutions that will create the best hope for a healthier future. We educate nursing leaders.
