Department Message

The department of Adult Health Nursing plays a key role in the preparation of undergraduate and graduate nursing students at Princess Salma Faculty of Nursing. The department provides numerous theoretical and clinical courses that focus on health and deviations of health among adults. Within this website you can find the complete list of the courses that are taught in our department for both graduate and undergraduate levels.


Undergraduate nursing students are initially motivated to learn through carefully guided experiences in the well-prepared nursing skills labs in their first year and then in their second year are moved to practice clinical nursing where they are instructed and supervised to use critical thinking skills in caring for adult patients with acute and chronic health deviations. As the students progress for roles of increasing nursing complexity in their last undergraduate year, the educational process in the intensive clinical training courses becomes more independent and inquiry based.


At our department, we are creating a learning environment that encourages our students to meet a changing and challenging healthcare environment with education as the means to make a difference in the lives of people.

We are keen to implant within our students a belief that providing excellent care is not just an aspiration but an expectation. We guide our students to strive for excellence with the understanding that good enough is never good enough -especially now as nurses are being called to lead in the transformation and advancement of healthcare systems overall the world.

 It is definitely an exciting time to be a nurse and we are excited that you are considering our Faculty of Nursing to help you make your goals something more that will not only change your life but the lives of so many others you will encounter in your career.
