Nursing
(jointly offered with Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT))

The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Nursing is a two-year post registration programme offered jointly by SIT and the University of Glasgow (UofG). The nursing programme has been co-created and designed with inputs from practice partners in Singapore’s healthcare system across the care continuum, education partners, and the Ministry of Health. Building on the foundation that students have established during their nursing diploma studies, this programme will develop students’ critical, analytical and innovative skills, as well as their leadership, research, teaching, and clinical competencies. With an emphasis on the integration of knowledge and practice in the delivery of patient care, students will undergo module-focussed clinical placements in hospitals and the community throughout the programme. Apart from developing theoretical knowledge and clinical skills, they will gain an insight into health and social policies, and apply innovation in healthcare, as well as strengthen their skills in interdisciplinary collaboration and partnerships.
