The BMMI Group has partnered with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland - Medical University of Bahrain (RCSI Bahrain) to sponsor three Bahraini nursing undergraduate students with full scholarships.
As the world continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, this initiative comes in line with BMMI’s efforts to nurture the local workforce, as well as recognise the significant role of nurses as healthcare practitioners at the forefront of patient care. The focus on education and research is also in line with Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030, with higher education playing a vital role in the Kingdom’s future and global economy.
RCSI Bahrain’s nursing undergraduate programme sees an average of 120 graduates per year and offers education on par with international standards, as well as clinical experience from the early stages of the programme. BMMI will cover three full scholarships for Bahraini students enrolled in the full-time, four-year nursing undergraduate programme.
The official announcement of the selected students is expected to take place by August 2021, following interviews with a judging panel for the short-listed applicants. The selected recipients will be able to benefit from the scholarship for the duration of the four-year programme, subject to maintaining a yearly score equivalent to honours for each academic year.
