Bachelor of Nursing Advanced Leadership Track 護理學學士菁英領袖培育專修組別

BNURS-ALT

Short Description

The Advanced Leadership Track offered under the existing Bachelor of Nursing programme [BNURS-ALT] is designed for high achievers, who aspire to pursue an advanced and specialised nurse practice or a nurse-physician career in the healthcare sector across the local and global spectrums, to accomplish the professional curricula at an accelerated pace.

In addition to the 5-year BNURS curriculum, students will have the opportunity to articulate to HKU Master of Nursing (MNURS) or HKU Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)*:

Articulation to HKU Master of Nursing (MNURS)
Students shall be admitted to the 1-year part-time MNURS study, upon successful completion of the 5-year BNURS programme, and shall be able to complete one Bachelor’s Degree and one Master’s Degree in Nursing in 6 years upon satisfactory completion of curricula concerned.

Articulation to HKU Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)
Students shall be admitted directly to MBBS Year 2 and exempted from the Year 3 enrichment year requirement, upon successful completion of the 5-year BNURS programme with first class honours, and shall be able to complete 2 professional degrees in 9 years, upon satisfactory completion of curricula concerned.

The Leadership Development Programme is designed for BNURS-ALT students, which offers opportunities to acquire professional development skills for advanced performance and to cultivate leadership skillsets via experiential learning experience. Students will be assigned a designated professoriate staff and an experienced nurse leader as personal mentors, who provide advice and guidance throughout the BNURS-ALT study. Students can learn from the great minds, expand their personal networks and widen their horizon.

* Subject to the fulfilment of MNURS/MBBS programme entry requirements, if any.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination
