Nursing & Healthcare

Nursing as a profession has a strong focus on the health care of the person, the family, and the community. It supports and sustains the promotion and maintenance of health. In line with the School's tradition in providing excellent quality education, Nursing  Studies and  Healthcare has been offering a comprehensive choice of award and non award-bearing nursing and health care programmes in the past decade. We present an innovative learning environment that fosters personal and professional development for nursing and health care. We strongly believe that the intrinsic qualities of professionalism are made up of knowledge, ethics, competence and responsibility.

The different genetic make-up of individuals may affect the efficiency of digestion, absorption and utilisation of certain nutrients. As a result, different persons show different responses to the same food. Nutrigenomics is the science to understand the interaction between nutrients and human genes. The ultimate goal of nutrigenomics is to provide personalised nutrition advice according to one’s own genes.
This course aims to equip students with the knowledge of genetics and the cutting-edge technologies to understand how diet interacts with our genes, so as to be able to interpret the test results for personalised nutrition advice.
