Kiang Wu Nursing College of Macau (KWNC), founded in 1923, is a subsidiary institution of Kiang Wu Hospital Charitable Association (KWHCA). Evolving from the former Kiang Wu Nursing and Midwifery School, the College is the oldest nursing education institute in Macau. In 2015, the College received confidence ratings from the UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) in an institutional quality audit (IQA). The College is striving to enhance the curriculum to be multi-disciplinary and advance towards top-tier training. It is also determined to timely accommodate social demand and medical development.
In the past century, with the efforts and strengths of numerous people, Kiang Wu Nursing College of Macau has been developing stably. In 1999, the College was recognized by the government as a private higher education institute and it became the Kiang Wu Nursing College of Macau. In 2002, the College started the first four-year degree of “Bachelor of Science in Nursing”. This had turned a new page in Macau’s nursing higher education. To ensure the quality of the programme and to be in line with international standards, the College requested regular reviews for this degree by experts from the United Kingdom, the United States, Brazil, Thailand, and Hong Kong. The curriculum design, teaching, and learning quality of this degree are recognized by experts and the programme continues to improve.
