Bachelor of Science in Nursing (Academic and Professional, Sarjana and Ners)
This curriculum is developed as a blending of international standards through collaboration with the University of Melbourne nursing curriculum and in line with the regulation of Indonesian National Nursing Higher Education standards. It has a strong clinical component with students undertaking clinical placements each semester. Most placements will be within the Siloam Hospital Group, but community and other specialty practicum will be undertaken elsewhere. Upon completion of their study both in academic and professional skills, graduates will obtain a high level of competence as clinical practitioners and a solid foundation to further their development into any specialty area.
Degree Completion Opportunity for Academic and Professional Degree
High school graduate entry students should enter from the very beginning in the first semester of the program, however there is possibility for those who have already undergone other nursing programs or study in other disciplines to earn credits toward the Academic and Professional Degree program (i.e. relevant transfer credits may be recognized). The length of the study for this type of candidate depends on how many credits they earned in their previous educational institution. It is the intent of this program to build on the prior learning so graduates can assume leadership or advanced clinical roles upon completion of their study.
