Diploma in Nursing


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 and scholarship in all areas of 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,behavioural and nursing science.It is organised around the study of individuals within the family and community, and emphasises the integration of nursing theory with clinical practice to provide students with an opportunity for experiential learning.

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. Hospitals in Singapore that offer the employment opportunities are:

  • 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.

Those who have completed this Diploma in Nursing may pursue the Bachelor of Nursing Science offered by International Medical University (IMU) after three years of working experience. Find out more about the programme here.
