Berega Nursing School
The SCHOOL OF NURSING at Berega (SONAB) trains successful Secondary School leavers (form four) to be registered nurses. It offers a three year course at the Berega Hospital. Started in 2010, the nursing school is designed to produce highly trained nurses who truly understand patient care and who have first rate nursing skills. Tanzania has a shortage of trained professional nurses. SONAB is doing its part to fill the void. It provides training to young men and women who will be placed into jobs that pay well.
