"The Peking University Health Science Center-Macao Polytechnic Institute Nursing Academy" was established in 2021. In terms of the age of the academy, it is as young as a newborn baby. However, just like its long name, the academy has a profound origin and is extraordinary. The academy is a demonstration of a new era, new thinking, national development, and an innovative higher education running model. The faculty of the academy is composed of teachers from the century-old Peking University Health Science Center, and from the Nursing Program of Macao Polytechnic Institute, which has more than 50 years of nursing training experiences. The mixed faculty team with different backgrounds and teaching styles will bring students a brand-new teaching method and learning experience. The managing position of the academy is jointly appointed by the Peking University and the Macau Polytechnic Institute. This dual management model creates a good opportunity to learn and complement each other's strengths, consequently to improve managing ability and ensure the quality of teaching. The study plan equips students with both opportunities to learn at Macao Polytechnic Institute and Peking University. This arrangement can let students not only be familiar with the local healthcare system, but also get to know the healthcare system, hospital operation and campus culture in the Mainland China.
The Academy adheres to the teaching philosophy of “Learning, Caring, and Being Excellent", and also pursues the education spirit of "Diligence, Rigor, Objectivity, and Creativity" that Peking University has been pursuing for more than 100 years. This commitment provides students with a positive, truth-seeking and pragmatic learning environment, and cultivates their critical and reflective thinking skills, lifelong learning ability, and pursuing self-actualization in the nursing profession with transforming Nightingale’s spirit.
The Academy and the Peking University School of Nursing have sufficient and advanced teaching and learning facilities, and also have couple of sizable general hospitals as clinical practice bases, which can help students transform their theoretical knowledge into practice, and improve their comprehensive clinical competencies.
All the staff of the academy are committed to continuously improving teaching and scientific research, and will also work together with all sectors of society to serve the community.
Welcome to the Macao Polytechnic Institute and join the academy, you will have an exciting university life. We hope you all cherish learning opportunities and grow into high-quality professionals with a global perspective upon graduation.
