The Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) is a programme conducted by this Kulliyyah. This is a new degree programme both for the university as well as for the country. However, the nursing degree programme has long been established in many parts of the world.
The uniqueness of the Kulliyyah of Nursing, IIUM programme is the integration of Islamic input in its curriculum. In addition to the Islamic input, this programme will emphasize the Malaysian local need in the local context of our society.
Traditionally, nursing programmes in Malaysia have been conducted by the Ministry of Health at the Diploma level. Only recently have the public universities in Malaysia begun to offer nursing programmes at the degree level. Currently, University Malaya (UM), University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), University Sains Malaysia (USM), University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), University Teknologi MARA (UiTM) and University Putra Malaysia (UPM) are offering the degree programmes of nursing.
We are one of the latest public universities approved by the government to conduct the Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) programme. We are also the only university where nursing is given full ‘faculty’ status.
