UNSB is a proud affiliate of Uganda Christian University. Graduates of the three-year program receive a Diploma in Nursing, the equivalent of an RN designation. It is the only RN-level nursing school for a population of nearly one million people. UNSB is closely associated with Bwindi Community Hospital (BCH). UNSB was created through the collaborative efforts of a U.S./Ugandan team consisting of major donors James D. Jameson and Stephen M. Wolf, Dr. Scott Kellermann, the UNSB/BCH management team, the Kellermann Foundation, and Rotary International.Nurses trained at UNSB will be able to work independently throughout this remote region, greatly improving health care to a large, desperately underserved population in one of the poorest corners of Africa. In the rsing.orgUnited States, for every 40,000 people there are more than 350 Registered Nurses. In Bwindi, southwest Uganda, there has been only one Registered Nurse for a population of 40,000 people. UNSB graduates will help change the face of healthcare in this isolated region.
