The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is a two-year post-registration degree programme jointly offered by SIT and the University of Glasgow. The nursing programme has been co-created and designed with inputs from practice partners and the Ministry of Health, and is accreditated by the Singapore Nursing Board (SNB) from May 2016 to May 2025.

This degree programme builds on the foundation that students have established during their nursing diploma studies. The aim of the programme is to develop critical, analytical and innovation skills, as well as leadership, research, teaching, and clinical competencies. Through the programme's applied learning approach, graduates will be able to translate new nursing knowledge into practice.

Curriculum

The SIT-UofG Nursing programme has a range of modules designed to equip students with relevant knowledge and skills that will help them meet the healthcare challenges of Singapore and take the nursing profession forward. They will learn to analyse personal and professional values, and make sound, evidence-based and ethical decisions that will prepare them for leadership roles.

Career Opportunities

Graduates can pursue more advancement opportunities in their future careers as Senior Staff Nurse, Senior Nurse Educator, Senior Nurse Clinician or Senior Nurse Manager. Graduates can also further their studies by undertaking a Master in Nursing after which they may also pursue future career opportunities in more senior positions such as Director of Nursing/Chief Nurse, Advanced Practice Nurse or Principal Nurse Educator.

 

Integrated Work Study Programme

Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) provides students with the opportunity to undertake real work. Held over the span of six weeks, it is designed to be more in-depth than a traditional internship. You will gain real work experience and apply the theories you learn in class with actual practice.

It is mandatory for all students to complete the Overseas Immersion Programme (OIP) where they have to attend two weeks of taught seminars and two weeks of clinical observation in the overseas context.
