In 1988, I earned my bachelor’s degree in nursing from Abu Dees University in Jerusalem. It did not take a long time to find a job after graduation since there was a lack of women staff nurse in the majority of hospitals in Palestine. I began working in the Red Crescent Hospital in Jerusalem and in a short period of time I became the senior staff nurse of normal nursery and neonatal intensive care unit. During my six years at the Red Crescent Hospital, I realized that I needed to broaden my interest and knowledge in the area of neonatal intensive care, so I decided to obtain a master’s degree in nursing health of motherhood and childhood because I wanted to raise awareness among women of all ages. In 2004, a department for nursing was open at An-Najah University to welcome a new generation to take the lead for a healthy and educated life. Moreover, I am so delighted to be in the teaching staff to teach and encourage students from both genders to raise awareness among our society especially in these days as we face and live in the war conflict. I am interested in clinical research especially related to mother and child health.
