With Singapore’s ageing population rapidly expanding, adequate palliative care and enough health professionals to provide it has become the healthcare industry’s priority. Projections suggest that we would need about 30,000 healthcare professionals by 2020 to match the exponential growth of people over 65 to 610,000 in the same year1.
You could be one of those professionals. With your acquired healthcare proficiency, you can nurse the infirm back to health, ease the twilight years of the elderly, support the mentally disabled, and even save lives.
Kaplan is well-suited to help you pursue this noble career path, offering several Health Services programmes to ensure multiple opportunities available for students. Our Nursing programme, provided by Griffith University and ranked 11th in the World by Shanghai Rankings 2018, is one of the earliest programmes to be accredited by the Singapore Nursing Board (SNB)2.
It provides students with a core set of skills and specialist nursing expertise in areas such as pathophysiology and pharmacology, in order to qualify graduates for careers in hospitals, community health centres, general practices and mental health units.
