The World Health Organization in 2019 declared the year 2020 as theYear of the Nurse and midwife”, in honour of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale; the lady with the lamp and the mother of modern nursing. The declaration was in recognition of the immense contribution of nursing and nurses to the wellbeing of individuals, families, and communities. The emergence of COVID-19 however, marred all the planned international and local programmes to celebrate this noble and special category of health workers.


The outstanding feat of nurses in saving the lives of people during the COVID-19 pandemic has further demonstrated the commitment of the “Nightingales” to, coming to the rescue, in times of crisis; just like the Lady with the Lamp.  Some lost their lives in the line of duty, many worked under unspeakable conditions, and many were separated from their families and loved ones for weeks and months. Traumatized physically and psychologically, yet, they continued; doing what they loved to do best.  We cherish the sacrifices of the departed and celebrate those who are still on the battle field. We are proud of you! We are proud to be nurses!


The Faculty of Nursing Science strives to equip nursing students with theoretical and hands-on learning by offering up to date knowledge in classrooms and clinical experiences in hospitals, and community settings. Community service activities are encouraged to equip students with a sense of continuity of care across all age groups, and the different levels of care. The undergraduate programme is among the most academically rigorous on campus and has the reputation for preparing quality graduate with solid foundation to work nationally and internationally.


On behalf of the Faculty and staff, I would like to formally welcome you to the Faculty of Nursing Science at the University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo City; the first Specialized Medical University in Nigeria. Your choice of the Faculty of Nursing Science for your studies brings you into the exciting world of nursing, and provides support for you to actualize your dreams academically and in service to the community.
