Welcome to the

Pan American Directory of Schools of Nursing

The Pan American Directory of Schools of Nursing is a resource available on the web that provides information on Schools of Nursing recognized by the governments of the American region countries.


The development of Directory was a joint initiative between PAHO/ WHO Collaborating Centre and Nursing School in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil and aims to provide access to a range of information related to Nursing education in the regions of the Americas. It is, therefore, essential that the Schools and Associations of Schools of Nursing collaborate in maintaining a reliable and updated Directory so that the information can be found and used by stakeholders. We invite everyone to be part of this audacious project, that yet we believe will bring great contribution to the field of nursing education in our region.
