It is believed that these students will not only have a rewarding career, but will make a difference in the society with their profession that respects human dignity, supports healthy living environment, prevents spread of illnesses and diseases and will bring change in initiatives through literacy.

The school started operating in a private rented building in Modern Cooperative Housing Society, Karachi, in July 1985 as a School of Nursing for girls only. The very next year in October 1986, the School of Nursing was recognized by Pakistan Nursing Council. The graduation of the first batch of nurses was held in September 1988. After five years of operation it was realized that training for male nurse was as much needed as for any female nurse and therefore with the approval of Pakistan Nursing Council the training of male staff was introduced in September 1991. The midwifery training was started by the school next year in March 1992. 
The construction work of Murshid Hospital, near Hub River, completed in 1987, but owing to shortage of funds the School continued to function in the private building till 1994. The nursing school shifted to the adjacent building to the hospital premises when the school building along with hostel facilities was completed in 1995, the financial assistance for which was provided by the Government of Pakistan. It has covered area of 25,606 square feet (0.5 acres) with attached hostel and a small garden enclosed within its’ boundaries. The Nursing school has a beautifully built premise which has all required facilities and necessary equipment needed by any modern institution built for the purpose. Students learn from highly qualified faculty with current industry experience, utilizing on-site state-of-the art facilities.

As part of the program, students have the opportunity to work at various placement setups within the community & other hospitals. Some programs also offer opportunities to participate in inter-professional learning experiences, and local and international community service projects.

Using a national consensus-based process, the school has led the development of a series of essential documents that outline competency expectations for Diploma of Nursing Practice Programs. Using these documents, school of nursing is able to ensure that it adhere to the highest standards for its educational program and meet accreditation guidelines. The School plans to publish quality indicators and guidelines defining the essential clinical resources for nursing education and faculty practice very soon.
