MDIS School of Health and Nursing - A Private School 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), Bachelor of Science (Hons) Healthcare Management (Top-up) by Teesside University (UK) and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Nutrition Science by University of Roehampton (UK) to address the demand for skilled healthcare professionals in Singapore.

To support the growing demand for trained healthcare professionals, MDIS School of Health and Nursing is leading the way by introducing new healthcare programmes. These programmes are designed for experienced practitioners and professionals interested in areas of healthcare, focusing on healthcare management, public health, and nutrition to upgrade their skills, and enhance employability prospects. For those with an interest in Nutrition, the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Nutrition Science will provide a foundation in human nutrition, physiology, metabolism and identify strategies that improve diet and health. Students will develop research skills so that they may conduct their own research project into a nutrition issue of their choice in their final year. MDIS is the first private school in Singapore to offer the Nutrition Science degree. For healthcare and management, it is rapidly becoming impossible to divide it from research and a global mindset in order to provide effective healthcare. In addition to developing leadership and management skills, the Master of Science Healthcare Management and Bachelor of Science (Hons) Healthcare Management (Top-up) degrees will equip students with relevant research skills needed to utilise and evaluate research for evidence-based practice.

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.

"My experience in the nursing programme has widened my critical thinking skills and solving problems between nurses and patients. It also helped me to brainstorm more effectively on how to provide efficient interventions for my patients as a nurse. Nursing is the key to unlock our holistic care for our patients.”
