NEST SCHOLARSHIP SCHEME BY
GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN

The recent COVID-19 pandemic and the transformation in global healthcare highlighted the importance of nursing and midwifery in the healthcare system. There are around 80,000 nurses working in Pakistan, whereas, the need for nurses is estimated around 800,000 to 1million. Many institutions have joined hands to invest in the field of nursing and midwifery.

For the same reason, the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training (FE&PT) launched a four-year National Endowment Scholarships for Talent (NEST), for the nursing profession in Pakistan. The students who receive this scholarship will get financial support for their entire degree program.
