PolyU was the first university in Hong Kong to provide a pre-registration degree programme in nursing. Our innovative approaches to learning and teaching enhance students’ critical thinking and clinical decision making. This programme builds on our successful experience of delivering the psychiatric stream of the part-time Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Nursing programme, accredited by the Nursing Council of Hong Kong.
Our modern facilities include Nursing Therapeutics Laboratories, Mental Health Nursing Laboratories, The Yuen Yuen Institute Chinese Medicinal Nursing Laboratory, the Dorothy Wong Intensive Care Laboratory, the Integrative Health Clinic, the PolyU-Henry G. Leong Mobile Integrative Health Centre, the Centre for Smart Health, the Herbal Medicine Learning Centre, the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Community Health Services and the Yuen Yuen Institute Learning Resources Centre.
Field practice in this programme is arranged in a variety of health care settings, including general hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, psychiatric rehabilitation units, community psychiatric nursing services, mental health out-reach services and other community settings. We also offer a wide range of overseas student exchange programmes.
