Ayishetu Musa-Maliki

I am a lecturer in the Department of Nursing Sciences of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Kaduna-Nigeria. I graduated from the same Department in 2010 with a BNSc Degree and obtained my Registered Nurse and Midwife Certificates in 2011 and 2014 respectively from the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.

In 2011/2012, I enrolled for and obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) at the Nigerian National Teachers’ Institute, Kaduna, towards building my teaching career. Thereafter, I undertook a Master’s Degree programme in Disaster and Risk Management (MDRM) in Ahmadu Bello University from which I successfully graduated in 2013. 

In 2015, I proceeded for doctoral studies in Nursing Science at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. I developed a screening tool as a modification of Abuse Assessment Screen tool which is culturally sensitive/ specific for Intimate Partner violence (IPV) for women in northern Nigeria. This screening tool is to aid midwives to effectively screen pregnant women for IPV during their antenatal visit. I obtained my PhD Nursing Degree in 2019.

I have taught many undergraduate courses in Nursing and a few at the Postgraduate level. I have supervised numerous undergraduate student projects and some postgraduate students too. 

I have published in both local and international journals and attended several local and international conferences.

My research interests are in Maternal and Child Health, Disaster Emergency Preparedness in Nursing, Gender Based Violence, Clinical Nursing, and Ethical Issues in Nursing.
