IIUM Directory of Kulliyyahs

Kulliyyah of Nursing

From a humble beginning of 12 students, the Kulliyyah had increased the student intake to more 150 students per intake, making the total of 179 enrolled students in 2016, consisting of 144 female and 35 male students. 

At present there are 40 academic staffs. Majority of them are still pursuing their Masters in Nursing or PhDs either abroad or locally.

From the time the Kulliyyah was formed, the Annex Building of the Kulliyyah of Medicine was used as the temporary office. When the Kulliyyah of Medicine shifted to the Indera Mahkota Campus (IMC), the Kulliyyah of Nursing occupied the whole second floor as its administrative office and Clinical Laboratory. In 2009 the office was shifted to the second floor from the original office on the ground floor. Now the office is more spacious and located at a more strategic place next to the teaching and learning facilities in particular near the Clinical Skills Centre (CSC). 

For strategic management, the Kulliyyah used Balance Scorecard method as championed by the IIUM. The Kulliyyah worked very hard to meet the target as measured by the Key Performance Index (KPI).

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.
