JPT/BPP (R/723/4/0076) 10/18, MQA A 1843

This course will provide a comprehensive preparation and sound foundation in health sciences, behavioral sciences and nursing sciences using the integrated approach, which is being applied in each semester’s clinical practice. It aims at providing a humanistic and holistic approach to nursing, preparing the nurse to be sensitive to the needs of patients and/or clients. Students spend 3 years full time studying at UniKL RCMP in Ipoh with practical experiences in various disciplines at several government hospitals, healthcare centers and health clinics in Perak. During this period, they will be equipped with relevant exposure and experience for an exciting career in variety of nursing roles and health care settings. UniKL RCMP students are also encouraged to be involved in organized field work e.g. at the Orang Asli Settlement. With these structures and organized approaches in the teaching of the nursing students, they will be more prepared to offer healthcare services to the community.

Upon successful completion of the programme, a Diploma will be awarded by the University which is recognized by the Nursing Board of Malaysia. This course of study has attained the official recognition and the academic qualification being conferred is in compliance with the standard and quality set by the MQA. Our graduates are working in Government Hospitals, most of the Private Hospitals in Malaysia and in overseas such as Singapore, Brunei, Middle East, Canada.
