    Aims

    This five-year nursing programme aims to equip students with the essential knowledge and skills to become competent Registered Nurses (General) in Hong Kong. They provide a challenge to people who are interested in working in the health care field and have a vision of providing high-quality nursing care in the general area.

    Practicum

    The practicum exposes students to the clinical environment in hospitals and other health care settings. Face-to-face supervised practice and coaching take place to assist them to gain clinical competency.

    Professional recognition

    The programme is designed according to the requirements set by the Nursing Council of Hong Kong for training of Registered Nurses (General) and has gained professional accreditation.

    Graduates of the Bachelor of Nursing with Honours in General Health Care can register as Registered Nurse (General) in the Nursing Council of Hong Kong.

    Student activities

    Student exchange activities and study tours, both local and overseas, are organized for broadening their horizons in nursing and health care. Opportunities for attending international conference are also available. Through this international exposure, students become aware of the current trends in nursing development and appreciate the differences in practice in different countries. Students may even have a chance to present their study projects to international scholars.

    There are also self-initiated student activities arranged by the Student Union and student societies.

    Further studies

    Opportunities are available for the graduates of the programmes to advance to postgraduate studies in Hong Kong and abroad. They can choose to study further in the field of nursing or other health care subject areas, according to their career plans.

    Career prospects

    The programme prepares students to be Registered Nurses (General) and practice in Hong Kong. Upon obtaining the academic and professional qualification, graduates can work as Registered Nurses (General) in various health care settings, such as hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centres and residential care homes.

    As the graduates gain clinical experience, they will gradually progress to becoming senior nurses and take on different roles, such as advanced practitioners implementing advanced nursing practice; managers overseeing a work unit and supervising the junior nurses; or educators engaging in teaching activities within an educational institution.
