Diploma in Nursing

by | Mar 7, 2019

MAHSA University’s Diploma in Nursing is a practical and highly sought-after 3-year programme created with the SPM-leaver in mind. Complete in every way, it is the perfect course for individuals who have a keen interest in caring for patients who are suffering from illnesses in hospitals or in medical care settings such as hospices and emergency medical centres, both in the public and private sectors.

Students will be immersed in the study of core medical subjects such as the human anatomy, biology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology, and safety and health standards and procedures. Additionally, they will also learn the necessary support subjects such as communication techniques, psychological support for the sick and their families, English language, and computer technology.

At the end of the programme, students will be employment-ready, as they will know how to assess and plan nursing care needs and requirements; provide essential pre-surgical and post-surgical care; monitor and administer a comprehensive list of medicines, medications and intravenous infusions and transfusions; take temperatures, pulses, blood pressures and biological samples; write and keep medical records and organise their own and others’ work duties.

Most significantly, MAHSA’s Diploma in Nursing students will know how to give invaluable emotional support and medical advice to patients and their families.
