ABOUT THE NURSING DEGREE

Nursing is a unique profession, now more broadly defined as both an art and a science. In today’s challenging healthcare environment, the qualified, professional nurse combines knowledge (theory), skill (practice), creativity and intuition to tend the sick, comfort the grieving and support the desolate.

Nursing is a specialised profession that focuses on caring, nurturing, educating and research within the healthcare system. Those who are willing to learn, who possess leadership qualities and have a strong desire to care for and improve the quality of life of the sick should consider pursuing a course of study in Nursing. The nursing degree at IMU aims to produce knowledgeable, skilled nurses with clear critical thinking skills who are caring, assertive, motivated and well-disciplined.

For those who are qualified in this discipline, Nursing offers a wealth of career opportunities in the fields of education, clinical practice, research and management. A nursing graduate can aspire to become a university professor, a clinical specialist, a research specialist, or a director of nursing. With experience, a nursing graduate can run his/her own nursing home or nursery while there are also opportunities to pursue a nursing career abroad.

“Caring remains the essence of nursing. It is the caring behavior and practices that distinguish nursing from other professions. The IMU nursing degree programme has been planned to prepare a person to become a registered nurse and to be able to practise his or her profession in a variety of settings – in the public or private sector healthcare system as well as in other health-related industries. “
