MBRU Announces Scholarships for Nursing Frontliners
Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) has announced a 50% scholarship for postgraduate students of all nationalities applying for its College of Nursing and Midwifery MSc programs for the academic year 2021-2022, as a show of support to frontline workers and UAE nursing forces.
MBRU has also extended the application deadline for the College of Nursing and Midwifery MSc programs: MSc in Cardiovascular Nursing and MSc in Pediatric Nursing to June 27, 2021. Last year, the programs drew a strong response from nursing professionals in the UAE, with more than 70% of the first cohort of students for the College being Emirati females.
The College of Nursing and Midwifery programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education and will provide registered nurses with a wide range of skills and competencies across specialist areas of nursing and in specific clinical settings.
The programs can be completed over one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study, and a clinical component of the courses will see students undertake 12 weeks of clinical nursing practice in Northern Ireland, at the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust through a partnership between MBRU and its academic partner Queen’s University of Belfast.
The deadline extension and scholarship announcement were made at a virtual open day for prospective students. Professor Kevin J Gormley, Dean of College of Nursing and Midwifery, said: “The College of Nursing and Midwifery is a major step in MBRU’s mission to become a global hub for integrated healthcare education.
“Highly skilled, qualified nurses are essential to the future of healthcare in the UAE and the region, and we are confident that our courses – and our partnership with Queen’s University Belfast – will deliver exceptional students and model professionals.”
