There is a strong demand for doctorate-prepared nurses in the healthcare industry and nursing educational institutes in Pakistan. The Institute of Nursing Sciences has the pride to be a leader in nursing education in the country in general and in Sindh in particular. ZUFONAM is distinguished in having highly qualified foreign and locally prepared nursing faculty in the country. The institute is now aspiring to be the third private sector institution in the country to start a Ph.D. program in Nursing.

The Ph.D. program in nursing will facilitate the scholars to acquire leadership roles in nursing health care, initiate and maintain collaborative relationships with nurses and individuals in other disciplines, advance nursing and health care knowledge by critically evaluating existing theories and knowledge, identifying new areas of inquiry for research and develop the science that guides nursing practice and health care by conducting original research using established ethical principles and disseminating research findings to advance new directions in theory, practice, and education.
