Higher Diploma in Oncology and Palliative Care Nursing


Program Description

The Higher Diploma Program in Oncology and Palliative care Nursing started in 2016.  It is the first program of its kind in Palestine.  The main goal of this program is to improve the health status of cancer patients in Palestine. This will be achieved through graduating nurses who are knowledgeable, accountable, committed to quality improvements, use evidence-based approaches to patient care, make sound clinical judgments to improve the lives of patients, and are passionate about improving the science of cancer nursing through research. In addition, we nurture a compassionate approach to nursing care focusing on patients’ physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs. This program is made of 30 credit hours.
