ABOUT THE NURSING DEGREE

Nursing is a unique profession, now more broadly defined as both an art and a science. In today’s challenging healthcare environment, the qualified, professional nurse combines knowledge (theory), skill (practice), creativity, and intuition to tend the sick, comfort the grieving and support the desolate.

Nursing is a specialized profession that focuses on caring, nurturing, educating, and research within the healthcare system. Those who are willing to learn, who possess leadership qualities, and have a strong desire to care for and improve the quality of life of the sick should consider pursuing a course of study in Nursing. The nursing degree at IMU aims to produce knowledgeable, skilled nurses with clear critical thinking skills who are caring, assertive, motivated, and well-disciplined.

For those who are qualified in this discipline, Nursing offers a wealth of career opportunities in the fields of education, clinical practice, research and management. A nursing graduate can aspire to become a university professor, a clinical specialist, a research specialist, or a director of nursing. With experience, a nursing graduate can run his/her own nursing home or nursery while there are also opportunities to pursue a nursing career abroad.

bursary of RM16,000 is available for eligible students of the nursing programme. Bursaries are granted at the University’s sole discretion and decisions are final.
