The Department of Nursing is privileged to have Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital (MRRH) as the main teaching site for students’ clinical placements. Other sites include community placements and nurse training schools. Clinical teaching is very important because it integrates theory into practice, enriching students’ skills and attitudes. At MRRH, students rotate throughout all the units in the hospital, including the medical, surgical, emergency, paedatrics, and maternity wards; the intensive care unit; and many of the outpatient departments.  The Nursing department strives to prepare resourceful health providers who work in a multidisciplinary environment. Through an intensive course in Nursing Education, students are taught how to teach, a valuable component of nursing preparation. The department has collaboration with several nurse training schools where fourth year students are subjected to teach nursing students at both diploma and certificate level.
