Nursing 7


The UNIMAS Nursing Programme started in 1995. It is the first nursing degree offered in Sarawak and second in Malaysia. The first intake was in 1998 comprised of six post-registration students and 16 pre-registration students.

The nursing degree program was rescheduled in 2004 whereby the pre-registration students have to undergo a four-year program while the post-registration students undergo a 2½ year program. The first batch of 16 nursing students graduated in 2008.

Although having only one intake per year, our graduates are highly in demand worldwide as our program is recognized and accredited. Since its implementation, the Nursing Department has produced 248 nursing graduates who work not only in Malaysia but also in other parts of the world such as Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States.
