Nazareth Medical College was started in 2005 as an initiative of the Franciscan sisters of the immaculate Heart of Mary, with a mission of fostering professional nursing education and promoting excellence in nursing practice.
The school has grown from offering a distance education program of upgrading enrolled nurses to offering a 3years basic diploma in Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing (K.R.C.H.N).

The college has since its inception embraced a culture of hard work, commitment and dedication to excellence. This is enhanced by the presence of a modern resource centre and a well equipped skills laboratory and Library.
