Our Nursing Education

 


Mrs Lee Kong Chian Centre for Nursing Education

Our Mrs Lee Kong Chian Centre for Nursing Education was established for the primary purpose of enhancing the knowledge and skills of our nurses.

On 26 May 2009, NUH became the first hospital in Asia to launch a simulation laboratory for critical care training - The Mrs Lee Kong Chian Critical Care Nursing Simulation Laboratory. The 100 sq-ft laboratory consists of a High Dependency (HD) room and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) room (which are replicas of the actual setup). This means nurses can now practise their acquired skills in a simulated environment before attending to patients.

By keeping abreast with the latest developments in nursing practices and technologies, our nurses are well equipped to provide safe and quality nursing care to our patients.

We also pride ourselves in having a team of well-qualified and experienced Nurse Educators to cater to the learning needs of our nurses, including curriculum development and teaching methodologies - both didactic as well as practical. In addition, our Nurse Educators from varying clinical specialties provide support for our unit and translate theory to practice.
