Dr Eunice Ndirangu is an honors graduate from the University of Eastern Africa Baraton. She later received a scholarship to undertake Master of Advanced Nursing Practice, University of Nottingham, the UK where she went for her PhD graduating in 2016.

As the head of Aga Khan School of Nursing and Midwifery — the Kenyan campus, her responsibilities include academics & research activities.

Having two years between degree to master is an exemplary feat. She is a go-getter who focuses on the task at hand and takes her Nursing responsibilities very seriously. As well, acknowledges her supportive background playing a role in her academic achievements.

In research, Dr Eunice´s interests are primarily in HIV having several publications within this field.

Dr Eunice Ndirangu is a nurturing focused Nurse whose passion for the profession is not only on paper. A visionary who develops the profession through capacity building and being exemplary in her own rite.

So we ask, what makes a good nurse?

¨ A good nurse is one who is a critical thinker; one who is aware that knowledge keeps evolving. It has to be someone who has got some lifelong learning skills because there is no end to learning. And, most importantly, you’ve got to be compassionate. You can’t really take care of people unless you have compassion. ¨

Being the chair of the Nursing Council of Kenya Board, without a doubt, her remarkable leadership will make strides for the council and more so, to elevate Nursing. In Kenya and on a global scale for generations!
