This master’s entry programme aims to provide students with the opportunity to study the art and science of nursing from different perspectives and to develop their skills in clinical decision making, critical thinking and problem solving.
Successful completion of the programme will enable the graduate to register as a Registered Nurse (General) with the Nursing Council of Hong Kong (NCHK).
Graduates of the Master of Nursing Science program at The Chinese University of Hong Kong are eligible to register as Registered Nurses (General) with the Nursing Council of Hong Kong.
All graduates of the programme have joined the nursing profession as registered nurses in Hong Kong. The employment rate is 100%. About 90% of the graduates are currently working in public hospitals, while the rest working in private hospitals or non-governmental organisations.
We have kept track of graduate employment over the past few years in order to ensure that the courses in this programme meet with the healthcare needs of our society and the career development needs of our graduates.
Some courses in the programme have a stronger emphasis on clinical components, some have a broader coverage of nursing art and science, and some focus more on evidence-based practice and research advances.
Graduates with good academic results may pursue further studies in nursing, such as Doctor of Nursing or Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing.
