Programme Aims and Objectives The Bachelor of Nursing (BNurs) is a five-year full-time programme leading to an honours degree. The objective of the BNurs programme is to provide comprehensive and holistic nursing education and nurture generic nurses who will be able to work as competent practitioners in various healthcare settings. The credit-based curriculum is broad-based and multidisciplinary, and is designed to introduce the bio-psychosocial aspects of health and nursing care. It provides a balance between the broad areas of nursing, biological, behavioural and social sciences. The learning outcomes will enable students to obtain knowledge through the study of different disciplines, and to develop an inquiring mind, interpersonal skills and an understanding of the socio-cultural context in which nursing is practised in Hong Kong. The BNurs programme emphasises the integration of theory and practice. Students are exposed to a variety of clinical environments throughout the study. Comprehensive learning of clinical skills is under the supervision of experienced teaching staff. The process of teaching and learning is directed by nursing academics with a wide range of expertise, supported by the excellent facilities in various departments of the Medical Faculty and clinical settings. 2
