Bachelor of Science with Honours in Nursing Practice

Nursing as a healthcare profession encompasses a wide number of specialties including but not limited to child nursing, adult nursing and critical care nursing. As medical science and technology continue to advance, nursing professionals are also increasingly involved in the management of sophisticated medical equipment and therapy techniques.

This degree programme aims to upgrade the nursing profession by enabling nursing graduates to progress in management, clinical or education career paths. Students will study a range of modules designed to equip them to analyse personal and professional values, help make sound, evidence-based and ethical decisions and prepare them for leadership roles to take nursing forward to meet the health care challenges of the 21st century.

This degree programme is accredited by the Singapore Nursing Board.

“Overall, it was an enriching experience for me. I have learnt the culture in Manchester, differences in the healthcare system between Singapore and UK, and the root of socialising e.g. tea time, farewell dinner. Also, learnt how to be independent in terms of preparing own meals and getting directions.” – Nuraini Bte Mohamed Razali, Class of 2013

“I must say that this OIP experience was a fairly enriching and enjoyable one. Countless take-home messages, learning points and memories…” – Jenneth Leow, Class of 2013
