Overview

The Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science is an international program that aims at expanding the body of knowledge in nursing science to meet the challenges of the ever-changing world. The program also focuses on bringing about a better quality of life to the people as well as raising the bar for the nursing profession to the international standards.  The program intends to produce highly-qualified and skilled graduates who can integrate the many facets of nursing science into a holistic approach to the development of “health and living literacy”.  Moreover, to achieve their goals, students will learn to build cooperation among the public and private sectors.  Our graduates will play crucial roles in healthcare policy-making while maintaining ethical integrity to their professions to bring healthcare to international standards.

The curriculum is designed as a ‘Hybrid Model’ comprising classroom lectures and online learning through information and communication technology (ICT) of the future and interactive learning via social media/network with instructors as facilitators.  We want our students to develop their skills in sustainable ways and bring about knowledge and change to public healthcare. We want to shape our students to be lifelong learners and independent researchers.
