This year, the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences received 608 applications, but was only able to accept 76 students due to the lack of facilities and space. It was decided to move the Faculty of Nursing and Health Science into the new building. The new facility will provide additional classrooms, laboratories, offices, Student Lounge, and a courtyard, and improved car parking facilities, and enhanced landscaping. Over the years, the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences extended its programs to include Midwifery, Oncology and Palliative Care, Critical Care, Management Skills, Neonatal, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy. The new building not only will house these departments, but it will also house the Clinical Simulation Center, one of its kinds in Palestine and a Physiotherapy Center. These Centers, along with others, will offer training facilities not only for the students of Bethlehem University, but for other professionals in Palestine.
Bethlehem University is confident that the decision to relocate the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences to the new building is one that aimed at providing first class education and will provide for local needs of professional nurses and this is now a top priority for Bethlehem University.
This important project is estimated to cost USD 3,700,000, and Bethlehem University has already received a gift of USD 1,500,000.
Friends and supporters of Bethlehem University throughout the world are helping to make this become a reality, and we very much call on you to consider supporting this initiative through an extraordinary gift.
