Nursing represents 28.4% from the total workforce at any Hospital. It is considered as the cornerstone for medical service. Shortage of Nursing is a world wide problem, and in Saudi Arabia nursing workforce represents only 20% of the actual nursing manpower needed.

Therefore the MSD adopted a new project to establish 6 nursing Institutes at 6 different MSD Hospitals in order to train the Saudi girls on nursing profession, one of these Hospitals is the Northern Area Armed Forces Hospital.
