The target population was 15 and a simple random sampling technique was used to select the respondents in the organization where the study was conducted. The results indicated that; the department has never appraised or disposed its records ever since its establishment, records had already filled up the strong room which is no longer accessible and some of the records are staffed in boxes and some piled on the floors. It was recommended that the department adopts a record Keeping policy, train its staff on simple records keeping standards, adopts a records preservation plan, revive the records office and to appraise and dispose records systematically. The research concluded that Uganda Nursing School-Bwindi has worked seriously on records keeping problems though the safety and security of records is a challenge to personnel in-charge of records. Also, at Uganda Nursing School-Bwindi it was revealed that there were numerous instances where important documents and notes were not kept in secure conditions.
