WM12 - Bachelor of Nursing (Hons.)

UG Programme 4

The Bachelor of Nursing with Honours Programme has been designed to enable pre-registration students to acquire sound knowledge and skills base for beginning professional nursing practice. In addition, the post-registration students would take on this opportunity to strengthen and broaden their knowledge of nursing and its related and supporting disciplines to improve nursing care.

The programme also provides an appropriate educational base from which successful students may proceed to post-graduate studies in nursing. It values creativity in developing human potential and encourages its students to be both critical thinkers and independent learners. Students are, therefor, expected to be active participants in the teaching-learning process through their involvement in all of the programme’s educational activities.
