Inside the news: The United Arab Emirates is on the rise to nursing excellence

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, December 30, 2008

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is bringing nursing excellence to the Middle East.

In response to the country’s desire to achieve excellence and high quality nursing care, the UAE will build a 400-bed University Hospital in Dubai, scheduled to open in 2011. The hospital will embrace the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®’s principles, in hopes of achieving the nursing excellence award.

Next on the UAE’s list is to have all existing hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) by 2010. UAE hospitals who are already pursuing JCI have revised nursing and midwifery policies to be evidence-based. And to make certain that nurses at UAE hospitals are educated on how to provide excellent care, nursing students will now work toward bachelor’s degrees, instead of nursing diplomas. The University of Calgary in Doha is UAE’s first university to offer nursing degree courses.
