Students get to learn in two ways: by practicing in real clinical settings and by studying theory. This mix helps them gain lots of practical experience. We arrange placements in several types of places, like local clinics and distant hospitals, to give students a wide range of chances to learn. These placements are chosen to match the goals of our program.

Our program uses modern facilities, including labs that copy medical situations, for the Bachelor of Nursing course.
