Professional Development Opportunities

All staff within Nursing Development & Saudization (NDS) department are committed to the career development of our nurses. A wide range of learning and development opportunities are provided to strengthen the clinical skills and capabilities of nurses. These opportunities are built upon the philosophy of adult learning.

KFSHRC (Gen.Org.)-Jeddah is an approved provider of continuing education by the Saudi Commission for Healthcare Specialties (SCHCS). A strong collaborative partnership exists between NDS and clinical staff to ensure the continuing education needs of nurses are met. Continuing education programs are advertised via the monthly education calendar. 

In addition, role specific continuing education programs are developed such as the Saudi Career Development Programs (SCDP) across a number of general and specialist areas, Nurse Clinician Development Program. Our educational, mentoring and internal career growth opportunities can help nurses develop their career in highly specialized clinical areas as well as develop confidence in contributing to wider organizational projects which impact upon delivering safe patient care. This includes participating in multi-professional performance improvement projects as well as more nursing focused assignments.

The NDS team has established strong partnership networks with a number of local higher education institutions and universities to ensure a vibrant and highly focused learning experience is provided for Saudi Bachelors and Masters nursing students.
