School of Nursing and Midwifery is the oldest and biggest Nursing School in the country with diverse specialized departments. It is known as pioneer in the four pillars of nursing (education, research, management, and practice). It is also involved in the national level policy making and activities. Being involved in international activities (international students, collaboration, research projects) are also part of its policy.
School of Nursing and Midwifery is proud of its more than seventy-year history of education and pioneering position in research. Established in 1936, this school has always been one of the reputed schools nationally and regionally.With more than 747 undergraduate and graduate nursing and midwifery students, 83 faculty members and top alumni at all levels, the influence of this school in virtually all national and regional nursing and midwifery events is undeniable.

History of this steady improvement is as follows: Bachelor of Science degree (1963), Master’s degree in nursing (1975), M.Sc. in Midwifery (1988), M.Sc. in Anesthesia (1989), Ph.D. in Nursing (1999), Joint Program of Ph.D. in Nursing with Karolinska Institute of Sweden (2004), Ph.D. in Reproductive Health (2006), Continuing Education in Nursing and Midwifery (2007), Critical Care Nursing-Adult (2008), NICU (2009), and Geriatric Nursing (2011).
