ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

IMC’s Diploma in Nursing programme strives for excellence in preparing our future nurses to be knowledgeable, competent, compassionate, and ethical professionals, prepared to provide leadership in all areas or nursing practice. Throughout our programme we will help students develop and advance nursing knowledge.

Nursing is the integration of the knowledge and practice of human care. Nursing knowledge arises out of theory, scientific inquiry, and critical reflection. It is this synergistic effect that enables nurses to understand and significantly contribute to health and healing. Nurses employ theoretical, intuitive, moral, and ethical reasoning in their practice. The course involves a comprehensive and varied programme of study involving simulated practice and fieldwork, team learning, clinical skills development, and biological, behavioral, and nursing science. It is organised around the study of individuals within the family and community, and emphasizes the integration of nursing theory with clinical practice to provide students with an opportunity for experiential learning.

 

Employment Opportunities

Graduates of the Diploma in Nursing from IMC have the opportunity to work and gain valuable practical working experience overseas. These opportunities are made available by the IHH group of hospitals (Pantai/Gleneagles Group of Hospitals) in Malaysia and Singapore.

Parkway Pantai Hospitals in Singapore that offer the employment opportunities are to our graduates include :

  • •  Tan Tock Seng Hospital
  • •  Parkway Hospitals
  • •  Woodlands Hospital

Such an opportunity is made possible as employment mobility is integral to the IMC educational philosophy. Graduates who choose to work overseas will gain insight on the medical practices overseas, which is different from that in Malaysia. Having working experience in an overseas hospital is also an exciting way of setting you apart from the rest of the crowd when you start moving up the career ladder.
