Approved Nursing Schools in Kenya for Diploma and Degree

The Nursing Council of Kenya is responsible for accrediting and approving nursing and midwifery training schools and courses in Kenya. It’s important to verify that the institution offering a nursing diploma or degree program is accredited by the Council before making any financial commitments.

The Nursing council of Kenya will only recognize training taken in an approved nursing school.

To be a nurse in Kenya, one must meet certain educational requirements. For a diploma in Nursing, a minimum mean grade of C at KCSE and a C in Biology is necessary. For a degree in Nursing, a minimum KCSE mean grade of C+ and a C+ in Biology, along with other relevant subjects such as English, Mathematics/Physics, and Chemistry, are required.
