Kulliyyah of Nursing
The Kulliyyah of Nursing admitted its first batch of students to its undergraduate degree programme in June 2004, at the beginning of the 2004/2005 academic year. It was established in response to increasing recognition of the need for Malaysian nurses to have a sound academic foundation upon which to base their clinical practice.
Nurses play an important role in the patient care both in the government and private hospitals and they are essential personnel in the healthcare services. Currently, there is shortage of nurses in the country and the government health services. It is hoped that this programme will improve the situation and thereby consolidate the health services in Malaysia.
