BSc (Hons) Nursing (International)

The art of nursing is the practical knowledge which tells how to work to produce certain results; the other meaning is to develop the hands-on skills of nurses. The science of nursing is the body of knowledge based on many laws and principles of biological and physical nature as well as social and behavioral sciences.

Nursing as a service requires a broad education. Professional nursing is a service devoted to the promotion of human social welfare. Nursing helps to attain this objective by giving care to the sick and injured, promoting and restoring health and preventing disease.
