This pre-registration nursing programme provides a chance for Bachelor's degree holders in any discipline to simultaneously earn a professional credential, that of a registered nurse, and an academic credential, that of a Master's degree, simultaneously. The programme prepares students for registration as Registered Nurses with the Nursing Council of Hong Kong and to acquire the attributes to become future leaders in the profession. Its aims are as follows.
This is a collaborative programme run by the School of Nursing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital.
The programme is accredited by the Nursing Council of Hong Kong and graduates are eligible to apply for registration as Registered Nurses (General).
This programme embraces all of the theoretical components required for registration with the Nursing Council of Hong Kong. These include introductory and applied subjects, plus subjects relating to biology, social sciences, professional studies, and the humanities, which develop students' understanding of the biological and psychosocial dimensions of the human condition and healthcare.
The structure runs from simple to complex, covering child and adult care, maternal care, mental health nursing, community nursing, gerontological nursing and nursing research. Students are required to complete a clinical research project in the final year to consolidate their knowledge through research with a clinical nursing focus. Supervised field practice is organised throughout the study to integrate theory and practice.
