BSc Nursing Degree Student at KIU Sri Lanka

KIU currently offers the only Nursing Degree accredited from the UGC by a private sector higher education institute in Sri Lanka. The  BSc (Hons) in nursing degree programme is available for enrollment for registered nurses in Sri Lanka.

The nursing degree has been designed to provide a long felt requirement for registered Nurses in Sri Lanka to further their careers. Many registered nurses in Sri Lanka find their career progression halted due to limited options of education in their career field and also due to the time constraint they have to undergo with their dedication towards their profession. Therefore, the Degree programme offered by KIU has been developed from the ground up, to address these needs and students have the chance to complete the degree in 2 years.

Bachelor of Science Honours in Nursing will offer you insight to the intricacies of the nursing profession and will equip you with a deep understanding of theoretical knowledge required. Students have the option to choose a specialization area in their last year of study from nursing for mentally disabled, nursing for the aged or nursing for children. Our aim is to produce nursing professionals who will not only have the knowledge but the attitude and the capabilities of setting the highest standards in their careers.
