History of Nyeri Campus
The history of Nyeri campus can be traced back to 1947 when the college opened its doors to its first students. It was started as an Enrolled Nursing school.
In 1975, the college admitted the first Enrolled Community Nursing students while in 1995, the first Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing class at the campus took off. Nine years later in 2004, the college began offering an upgrading course in Kenya Registered Community Health Nursing.
The college is located along Kimathi/Kangemi Road, next to Nyeri County Level v Hospital.
