The Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education, the Ministry of International Cooperation and the Social Fund were very supportive of this initiative. In addition the main component of the collaboration wished to roll our the model of the Nursing Faculty at BUE across the Middle East with QMU as the major partner. The initial program proposal represents a re-shaping and upgrading of nursing within the region.
QMU has also acted as a consultant for the building and space planning strategy for the new Nursing Faculty in Shorouk through the auspices of the QMU Estates Manager.
Magrabi Mansour Nursing Faculty prepares nurses to meet the exciting and rapid pace of today's healthcare environment.
MMNF graduates find they have the solid academic foundation and clinical experience they need to meet the challenges of a career in professional and international nursing.
The Mission, educational philosophy and aims of the BUE are closely aligned with those of Queen Margaret University (QMU), in particular the emphasis on the delivery of high quality education, widening participation and student focused learning. The Regulations and policies of the BUE conform to UK practice and its quality assurance and enhancement processes ensure that QAA norms and standards are safeguarded. Within the Egyptian context the Nursing programme also meets the requirements of different statutory and regulatory bodies including, the Supreme Council of Universities (SCU), the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education (NAQAAE), the Ministry of Health and Population (MHP), and the Nursing Syndicate (NS).
