Diploma in Nursing

Diploma in Nursing
@ Institute of Medical Sciences - IMS

As the council recommendation it is necessary to have three years – Diploma in order to get the SLNC registration or upgrading to degree level in the future.  Therefore, the curriculum of the NTS (National Training School) was revised completely and the curriculum for the Diploma in Nursing was designed under the academic board meeting. This curriculum is having 60 credits value as the SLQF – 4 (Sri Lankan Qualification Frame Work 2016).

The curriculum was designed to reflect the student centered problem based learning instead of the traditional teacher centered information providing learning in the domain of knowledge, skill, attitude – professionalism, mindset and paradigm. Each subject’s syllabus was designed in order to reflect these domains.

The First year curriculum was developed to provide necessary backbone of Medical and Nursing Field. The second and third year were designed as the target of special nursing areas such as psychiatric, community, pediatric, surgical and research methodology.
