What will I learn?

As a student nurse, you will learn comprehensive nursing theories and practices. You will also develop a strong foundation in biological and behavioural sciences, research and management skills. This will prepare you to make significant contributions to the health of patients.

Clinical placements

Beyond classroom learning, you will be attached to various healthcare institutions. You will gain first-hand experience by caring for patients. There are also simulation laboratories which resemble actual wards, where you can develop your clinical expertise and confidence.

"I have learnt that nursing is about head, heart and hands. My lecturers have taught me that more than just knowledge, nursing requires empathy and compassion, as well as patient management and understanding the perspectives of their caregivers and families."
