The Department of Nursing has been preparing students to become outstanding registered nurses, providing them with a strong foundation in natural and social sciences as well as a comprehensive understanding of patient care in various settings and conditions. Students learn the value of nursing as a profession and serve as a role mode of caring for others.
Our students are trained to lead and acquire relevant principles and practices as they serve in various tertiary hospitals and communities during their practicum. They develop a caring behavior, a strong concept of social responsibility, critical thinking and self discipline. Armed with technical and communication skills, they are able to provide safe and effective nursing care.
