Welcome from the Head
The HKU School of Nursing offers exceptional opportunities for exceptional students through the outstanding quality of our programs, our staff and our facilities. We are a lively, energetic and rapidly growing School, located in the dynamic and vibrant learning community that is the University of Hong Kong, with its rich history of world class achievement and outstanding record of success in producing leaders.

We are interested in students who aspire to be tomorrow’s leaders, who recognize and value the superior opportunities that our School provides for them, and who, with a dedicated spirit of enquiry, want to develop their knowledge and skills to share in our Faculty’s outstanding record of accomplishment in knowledge production and dissemination and in improving health outcomes for the community.

Established in 1995 with 42 students, we now have over a thousand students enrolled in undergraduate programmes, and postgraduate research and taught programmes at master’s and doctoral levels. We work closely with a range of clinical and community partners thus ensuring that our students have access to high quality placement experiences for their professional practice preparation. We are known internationally for the quality of our research and, acting as a gateway between China and the rest of the world, we collaborate with leading universities nationally and internationally in facilitating student learning and research.

We are very excited about the opportunities the future presents for us, not only in teaching and research, but also in our service to the community.  Through our knowledge exchange activities we are able to channel our expertise into supporting health improvement initiatives that will benefit the wider community. We invite you to explore our website and find out more about our programmes, students, staff and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you to our School to join us in pursuing nursing excellence and service to our community.
