NURSING / NURSING SCIENCE program (course) in Malaysia’s Universities & University Colleges (U&UC)

Submitted by on 15 June 2011 – 9:14 pmNo Comment

By very raw definition, nursing is a healthcare profession focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities so one may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life from conception to death. Whereas nursing science is a field of knowledge based on the contributions of nursing scientist through peer reviewed scholarly journals and evidenced-based practice.

As stated by International Council of Nurse, “Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing i includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of a safe environment, research, participation in shaping health policy and in patient and health systems management, and education are also key nursing roles.” reference

No doubt to practice nursing is not an easy job, but when one’s determination and effort take part in the path of realizing,  as easy as one plus one it will be. Nursing program / course is available in many of Malaysia’s universities & university colleges (u&uc), just depends on one’s intention upon selecting of preferred learning institution.
