The oncology course is one of a kind in the country and is only offered at AKU and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

The first batch of nurses specialising in the care and treatment of cancer patients from the Aga Khan University (AKU) graduated on Wednesday.

Speaking at the 14th graduation ceremony in Nairobi, the university’s president, Mr Firoz Rasul, said the rising cases of cancer in the country necessitated the creation of a curriculum specifically for nurses handling such patients.

According to Dr Eunice Ndirangu, the head of academics at the school of nursing and midwifery, the oncology course is one of a kind in the country and is only offered at AKU and Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.

A total of 80 students of AKU graduated.
