In our more than 30 years of 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

KPJ provides a variety of scholarship opportunities, including Scholarships based on merit and Dermasiswa based on financial need, underscoring our commitment to nurturing the future generation of healthcare leaders and professionals. Many students may find themselves free from tuition and fees for the duration of their academic careers thanks to the joint support of PTPTN and our scholarship. Hostel rooms are available for the full three-year study term, but the costs involved are not included in the total cost of tuition and fees.

KPJ will also provide a Nursing Financial Scheme specifically for students pursuing a Diploma in Nursing beginning in 2023. This financial aid program is intended especially for students who wish to continue their education at KPJ University’s Diploma in Nursing program. It was founded in response to the growing need for patient care in the KPJ hospitals’ new wards and the dearth of trained nurses at KPJ hospitals across Malaysia.
