Columbia University School of Nursing Partners With American International University West Africa

The School of Nursing at Columbia University has signed an agreement with American International University West Africa (AIUWA).

The first action of the agreement will bring four master’s of nursing students from Columbia to AIUWA for six weeks of clinical training. Eventually, the new partnership will provide both institutions with exchange opportunities.

“This is part of a long-term initiative at CUSON in which we will be sending 75 students to 16 different countries around the world,” said Jennifer Dohrn, director of the office of global initiatives at Columbia’s School of Nursing.

Dinesh Shukla, president of AIUWA hopes that this partnership will help grow and increase the African university’s programs and enhance the overall nursing and midwifery profession. “We are now proposing a master’s degree in midwifery and we need partnership. It is important to develop this and we want here to be a center of nerve for medical education,” said President Skula.
