The Nursing Department of Medical College, Xiamen University was established in 2007. We offer dynamic opportunities in academic study with leading expertise in nursing research. The Nursing Department has a strong mission to educate competent nursing leaders for the clinical and research areas. In accordance with the concept of elite education and the Solid Basic, Comprehensive Knowledge, High Quality, Great Capability” training mode, our goal is to develop the students’ competency to deliver quality care, carry out relevant research, and make a significant contribution to the health of the public. Students will not only master the technical and professional skills required for a registered nurse, but also develop leadership skills related to teaching, research and nursing management.

All of the nursing students achieved an outstanding performance in the National University Entrance Exam. In the Nursing Department, we offer the Bachelor degree of nursing program (4 years) and the MSc. of nursing program (3 years). Our goal is to provide a high-standard and holistic nursing education that will prepare our graduates to become leaders in the nursing profession.

One of the strengths of the nursing education course is its innovative curriculum responding to the health needs of the population. It is the endeavor of our well qualified teaching staff of the Medicine School and Xiamen University to set a curriculum focusing on basic theory and practical skills, simultaneously, under the guidance of the rapid prosperous mode of the Medical School.

In addition, the Nursing Department is forming strong collaborations with top class university schools of nursing internationally, enabling academic exchanges. The Nursing Department prepares its students to take part in the International Student Exchange Programme. The programme is designed to provide an opportunity for nursing students to develop a deeper and broader understanding of nursing professionals in other cultures by working as a member of a clinical team, in either a hospital or community setting abroad. In 2009, we sent 4 nursing students to the Norwegian Vestfold University as exchange students. In 2011 we began to send nursing students to Singapore General Hospital and National University of Singapore for an internship, and we also accept nursing students from National University of Singapore for an internship later. Looking ahead, we will build good relationships with the top Nursing Departments / Nursing Colleges, worldwide, to promote our development.
