About NUR
Nursing as a profession has always played an important role in the medical and healthcare industry. Its scope of professional practice covers the community, schools, hospitals, elderly care homes, etc. In this 21st century, Hong Kong is facing challenges associated with the rapidly ageing population which leads to an increasing demand for healthcare services and professionals. To this end, nurse educators must uphold their spirit of excellence and demonstrate exceptional dedication to nurturing the finest nursing professionals in order to enhance the standards of clinical practice, teaching, research, etc. and in turn foster tomorrow’s healthcare elite for the community.
The School provides a series of professional degree and sub-degree programmes including the Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) programme which offers majors in Nursing and Applied Gerontology. Accredited by the Nursing Council of Hong Kong (NCHK) as a pre-registration nursing training programme, the five-year Nursing major is designed to prepare the graduates to become competent nurses who are eligible to be registered as Registered Nurse. Being the first of its kind among tertiary institutions in Hong Kong, the four-year Applied Gerontology major aims to prepare graduates to become qualified elderly care specialists who are capable of delivering comprehensive care to the elderly. Also accredited by the NCHK, the Higher Diploma in Nursing programme is a two-year pre-enrolment nursing training programme which enables students to become capable nurses who are eligible to be registered as Enrolled Nurse with the NCHK.
The School is a lively teaching and research community comprising outstanding teaching and research staff who possess a wealth of clinical and teaching experience. Not only do we impart knowledge to our students, but we also actively involve in diverse types of healthcare research and promotion of the industry’s development. We also collaborate with local public and private hospitals, healthcare organisations and community healthcare providers to provide students with valuable clinical practicum opportunities so that they can apply the acquired knowledge in real life situations and enhance their clinical skills.
