The goal of the department is to train community health nursing professionals who are competent to promote health and provide quality preventive and rehabilitation services to communities as well as to carry out research in current and emerging issues in public health through the application of principles and theories related to nursing care delivery and modern concepts in community health practice.

The department also coordinates the masters of science post graduate program in the school of nursing. The Masters of Nursing program is designed to prepare nurses for leadership positions in research, nursing education, advanced nursing practice, and administration.
