Further, all the programs have been fully accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation under the Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research. RAKMHSU is known for its absolutely honest and transparent administration, focusing on professionalism.
It is also a matter of pride for RAKMHSU for being able to be the First in UAE to start two year Masters Programs in Nursing and Pharmacy. Now, in addition to the MS in Adult Health Nursing (MSN), MS in Clinical Pharmacy, we also have MS in Pediatric Nursing, MS in Community Health Nursing, MS in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, MS in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, MS in Pharmaceutics and Pharm.D, programs after due accreditation. It is also heartening to see our Nursing and Pharmacy Graduates getting placements in different hospitals and industries immediately after their graduation. It is also satisfying to note that our students have not only done well in some of the external qualifying examinations, but also have done well in both Dubai Health Care and Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) Examinations.
From the humble beginning with 22 students, RAKMHSU has grown remarkably well, having 1300 plus students from 48 different Nationalities. Same way, RAKMHSU is proud of having 109 Teaching Faculty, 113 Adjunct Faculty and 96 Non-teaching Staff hailing from 26 different countries. Actually, RAKMHSU has become a role model of synergy and cooperation among the students and faculty of different nationalities and religions pursuing with commitment their respective professional careers. The continued significant contribution from our committed faculty has helped RAKMHSU immensely in improving the academic standards. RAKMHSU is proud to maintain a Student-Teacher Ratio at 7:1, which is more than an ideal situation.
