CICELY MCDONELL COLLEGE OF HEALTH SCIENCES


About this center

Established in 1956, the Nairobi Hospital Cicely McDonell College of Health Science was an initiative of the Kenya Hospital Association, taking its name from Sister Cicely McDonell - a woman who made an immense personal contribution to the welfare and health of the Kenyan people. During its humble beginnings, the school admitted few students, with the first intake being only 5 students and one tutor. However, in response to the ever-increasing demand for nursing training, the student population has exponentially increased and to date, over one thousand six hundred nurses have graduated from the institution, a third of which have been absorbed by the Nairobi Hospital. Today, this college has become a necessary resource in the medical care in Kenya, producing qualified, responsible, and clinically-oriented nurses who are employed in health agencies locally, regionally and internationally. 

Located in a serene environment, with beautiful and well-maintained gardens, the school offers a welcoming, supportive and favourable environment that moulds the right attitude for a nursing education, producing graduates who are professionally outstanding through comprehensive theoretical learning and extensive practical training. In addition, the welfare of the students at the school is of utmost importance to the management and all courses and programmes have been designed to give a state of equilibrium of the physical, mental, social, and spiritual components of student nurses. Learners are therefore provided with a homely environment and encouraged to participate in charitable and spiritual activities such as the Christian Union, Catholic Action, and others. 

We offer: 

  • Well-equipped lecture rooms and computer skills laboratory 
  • A library resource centre equipped with modern books, internet services and other teaching and learning materials.
  • Recreational facilities such as swimming pool, football, darts, netball, volley ball and other indoor games.
  • Catering Options 
  • Health Care
  • The opportunity for students to organise major activities including charity events, a swimming gala, Christmas concert, sports activities, open days, and corporate social responsibility activities. 

At the Nairobi Hospital Cicely McDonell College of Health Science, our community of passionate lecturers, health-care professionals, and students are dedicated to meeting the challenges of the contemporary workforce within the field of medical higher education with the aim of making Kenya a healthy, modern nation.
