Diploma in Nursing at KPJU has produced thousands of Registered Nurses since 1991, all trained by KPJ Specialist Hospitals all over the country. The programme is accredited by both Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and Malaysian Nursing Board – Lembaga Jururawat Malaysia (LJM). The programme aims at achieving the right balance between theory and practice. Following that, our students learn approximately 30% in classrooms, 20% in our on-campus Skill Labs and 50% undergoing Clinical Training at our 28 hospitals. We are proud to have thousands of our Alumni of Diploma in Nursing working in public and private hospitals now as frontliners and the backbone of the healthcare industry. Being the Big Sister in Nursing education in the region, KPJUC offers the whole ecosystem of Nursing academic programmes from Diploma, Post-basic, Bachelor, Master up to PhD in Nursing – all accredited by MQA.
Upon successful completion of the 3-year Diploma in Nursing programme at KPJU, students will be eligible to sit for national level examination by Lembaga Jururawat Malaysia (LJM). In our more than 30 years experience, all 100% of our students pass this examination. After passing the examination they will be awarded State Registered Nurse (SRN) status. Many of them are employed by KPJ Specialist Hospitals while others work at other private or public hospitals. Upon verification done by the respective country’s Nursing Board, candidates would be eligible to work abroad.
Scholarship for Nursing
KPJ offers a lot of opportunities for Scholarship in the form of Biasiswa by Merit that reflects our commitment in grooming future professionals and leaders in the healthcare sector. With the combination of PTPTN and our Scholarship, many students may not need to pay or pay very little tuition. Please refer the following Table for an indication of how much you will actually need to pay or will receive for your study. This calculation is based on the condition that you, like almost all our present students, are approved and receive PTPTN to pay for your tuition and fee. We would help you to apply for PTPTN during your orientation week.
