From a humble beginning of 12 students, the Kulliyyah had increased the student intake to more than 50 students, making the total of 173 enrolled students in 2009, consisting of 138 females and 35 male students. Out of this total, there are 2 international students from Saudi Arabia.
At present there are 36 academic staffs, 3 of them are not Register Nurses. Majority of them are still pursuing their Masters in Nursing or PhDs either abroad or locally.
Since the Kulliyyah is still young, lacking senior staffs, research and publication is of low out-put. Currently only 2 academic staffs are active in research. For the similar reason, the Kulliyyah has not started any post-graduate program. The Kulliyyah is in contact with foreign universities in Australia and Hong Kong, particularly with Griffith University in Brisbane, to establish a Memorandum of Understanding to assist the Kulliyyah in the areas of post-graduate training, research and publication.
Although the Kulliyyah was short of senior academic staff, some of them were appointed externally as expert in their own field of specialization. For example Br. Said Nurumal was involved in the Malaysian Nursing Board and Assoc. Prof. Datin Dr. Aishah Ali was appointed as external assessor and external examiner to some local universities.
From the time the Kulliyyah was formed, the Annex Building of the Kulliyyah of Medicine was used as the temporary office. When the Kulliyyah of Medicine shifted to the Indera Mahkota Campus (IMC), the Kulliyyah of Nursing occupied the whole second floor as its administrative office and Clinical Laboratory. In 2009 the office was shifted to the second floor from the original office on the ground floor. Now the office is more spacious and located at a more strategic place next to the teaching and learning facilities in particular near the Clinical Skill’s Laboratory. This skill’s lab is still under renovation to accommodate more simulated mannequins that are purchased for effective skills training.
For strategic management, the Kulliyyah used Balance Scorecard method as championed by the IIUM. The Kulliyyah worked very hard to meet the target as measured by the Key Performance Index (KPI). As stated earlier the Kulliyyah was below the target in the areas of research and publication.
Nurses play an important role in the patient care both in the government and private hospitals and they are essential personnel in the healthcare services. Currently, there is shortage of nurses in the country and the government health services. It is hoped that this programme will improve the situation and thereby consolidate the health services in Malaysia.
