St. Kizito Hospital School of Nursing and Midwifery is situated in North-Eastern Uganda located in Matany, a sub-county of Napak District in the Karamoja Region. It is 40 km from Moroto Municipality and 14 km from the proposed Napak District Headquarter. It began in October 1984 with a Certificate in Nursing which extended its services in May 1993 when it started a Diploma in Nursing Course. This was suspended with the introduction of a Certificate in Midwifery Training course in May 2010. The school capacity was determined at 90 students due to available accommodation and classroom space as well as the availability of qualified tutors. However, the school, along with other development partners, strives to improve this availability through staff development and other capital development plans.
The school is fully owned by the Board of Trustees of Moroto Catholic Diocese. The school currently runs Two programs:
- Duration: 30 Months (2 ½ years)
- Application deadline: 30th June annually (pending discussions as the course begins in May)
- Interviews: early February
- Number of places: 25 Students for the Certificate in Nursing and 15 for the Certificate in Midwifery.
