Strengthening Midwifery Faculty teachers.
Amoud University has successfully established the School of Nursing and so far has graduated four groups of nurses with BScN. The university has also enrolled students for a community midwifes training for the rural districts and villages of Somaliland. The vision for the community midwifery programme is that women selected by their communities for rural and remote areas of Somaliland to serve them as midwives will be able to meet the requirements of the 2011 international definition of the Midwife and the 2010 essential competencies for Basic Midwifery practice.
Amoud College of Health Sciences aims to train professionals with higher education and qualified for the respected professions. To produce well trained midwifes, the faculty of nursing and midwifery needs to have expert midwife teachers to implement the BScN midwifery program as well as the community midwifery program. Therefore, strengthening the midwifery faculty teachers is a priority .This project will help us train a two year post BScN midwifery teachers. The graduates of this program will be able to teach in the midwifery school.
Amoud School of Nursing has started the postgraduate study of nursing education and is designed to prepare students to meet established nurse educator competencies. Students acquire knowledge, develop skills, and internalize values needed for success as a nurse educator in areas and are to upgrade the teaching capacity of the nurses interested in teaching nursing programs or in staff development departments.
The curriculum involves a rigorous and complementary combination of clinical and professional content with a focus on teaching and learning, the evaluation of learning, course development and curriculum/program development and evaluation. It also emphasizes evidence-based teaching practices to help students develop as educational scholars who can contribute to the development of the science of nursing education.
