Pursue Nursing – MDIS School of Health and Nursing in Singapore

The School of Health and Nursing is dedicated to the training and education of nurses who are pursuing their post-registration degrees as well as healthcare professionals. In partnership with Edinburgh Napier University (UK), the nursing school will deliver the Bachelor of Science Nursing (Top-up) post-registration degree in Singapore. The nursing school was founded to equip students with the latest knowledge and skills in nursing so as to allow graduates to conduct their profession at the highest levels of competencies in Singapore.

In the context of life expectancies and prominence of lifestyle diseases (e.g. diabetes and obesity), nursing and healthcare are set to play increasingly important roles. Set against the backdrop of an ageing population, Singapore's healthcare landscape will inherit the standard challenges and pose a few that would be specific to a predominantly geriatric population. This signals the continued and increasing need for nursing school graduates and other healthcare professionals in Singapore.

In addition to the Bachelor of Science Nursing (Top-up) post-registration degree, the health and nursing school of MDIS has also recently launched the Master of Science Healthcare Management and Master of Public Health degrees offered by Northumbria University (UK), to address the demand for skilled healthcare professionals in Singapore.

Our nursing school also adopts a holistic approach to learning and places utmost importance in the nurturing and development of students in Singapore. We place equal emphasis on student learning outcomes, mentorship and the overall learning process. The exchange of ideas through symposia and conferences as well as industrial and clinical visits are also encouraged among nursing school students here in Singapore. These philosophies are in alignment with Edinburgh Napier University (UK) and we are proud to work together with them in delivering the Bachelor of Science Nursing (Top-up) Degree. This post-registration programme offered in our nursing school is accredited by the Singapore Nursing Board (SNB) and will be a good accolade to advance your nursing career in Singapore.

Dedicated Nursing Practicum Lab

Clinical education is a fundamental component in the nursing curriculum. Critical hospital environment settings and changes in clinical placements have reduced students’ direct experience with patient care. Issues such as patient safety and ethical considerations are problems raised by the hospital management during students’ clinical placements in hospitals. Alternatively, simulation-based nursing training is a popular pedagogical approach. Students studying at MDIS will be able to put theory into practice in our state-of-the art Simulation and Clinical Skills lab. Taught by nursing professionals from Edinburgh Napier University, nursing students will be competent in demonstrating their communication and problem solving skills, professional values, nursing practice, decision-making, leadership, management and team-working abilities without compromising the patient’s well-being.
