Postgraduate training for Ethiopian nurses

This project follows a successful pilot year of an MSc programme for allied health professionals at the University of Gondar, Ethiopia. The pilot was run by the Leicester-Gondar Link at the University of Leicester, who are now developing a similar programme aimed at nurses

The project aims to:

  • Develop joint curricula for the new MSc in Advanced Clinical Nursing for the Ethiopian context.
  • Support the first intake of teaching whilst training the tutors for the future.
  • Provide tutor mentorship.
  • Evaluate the programme.
  • Make curricula freely available.

An additional grant was made for two senior nursing lecturers from the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Leicester's De Montfort University to work on the development of curricula for the MSc in consultation with the staff at Gondar.
