  Nursing- Introduction

Nursing is a profession that focuses on caring, empathy, compassion and the spirit of community care. These qualities distinguish nursing from other professions. As society evolves, the future of nursing care will become increasingly demanding, particularly in the area of chronic diseases and care of the sick and the elderly. In accordance with the requirement of the Ministry of Health Malaysia the vision of UTAR's Bachelor of Nursing (Hons.) is to nurture nurses who can provide comprehensive promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative care. We aim to produce a new generation of nursing workforce who are highly skilled, possess critical thinking skills and with highest degree of professionalism, discipline, moral and ethical standards.

The process of setting up the Bachelor of Nursing (Hons.) programme in UTAR began early 2010. In April 2010, Ms Fong Ka Ling was appointed as the head of nursing program. On 29 June 2010, two Malaysia Nursing Board panel assessors visited UTAR, Sungai Long Campus, to assess this programme. The panel was led by Pengarah Kejururawatan, Puan Hjh Fatilah Abd. Wahab and Timbalan Pengarah Kejururawatan Puan Leong Sui Han. On 24 August 2010, our program was accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), followed by approval from Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) in October 2010.

Our emphasis is to have a small number of student enrollment, well established skills centre and sufficient learning facilities and support. Over the last 6 months we have streamlined our curriculum design to equip graduates with the practical skills and evidence based knowledge and to be competent in problem solving, critical thinking and caring behavior. Besides academic study, student nurses are required to undergo stipulated practical training in medical centers. We have also set up a fully equipped skill laboratory and simulation ward for student teaching and practical purpose

Our Nursing team pledges to nurture high standard qualified nurses. Nursing program promotion was initiated on Dec 2010 and our first enrollment is expected in May 2011.
