About Nazareth Medical College

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 program is regionally and internationally recognized and prepares the student nurses to work efficiently in acute health care systems, obstetric and community settings.

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.

Performance and activities.

We have presented several groups so far to the nursing council for their licensing examination and they have had exemplary performance, placing the college among the top 3 position countrywide severally.


The school currently has two annual intakes in the month of April and October. The year 2012 saw us grow from admitting female students only to admitting both male and female students.

  • KCSE or equivalent with mean grade C (plain) and above English or Kiswahili C (plain) or above (mandatory)
