Dr. Nguyen Minh Loi speaks at the event

Dr. Nguyen Minh Loi said: “Nursing is one of the three major professions most seriously lacking qualified staff and, as we enter the next stages of development and our living standards increase, the demand for better health-care has come sharply into focus. This new program demonstrates that DTU is resolved to graduate highly-qualified international nurses, to enhance the quality of health care for residents and visitors alike. Hopefully, DTU and Fooyin University will continue to work together to improve the education of highly-qualified professional nurses, in order to drive socioeconomic development in Vietnam and advance international integration.”

The thirty students, consisting of ten DTU staff and twenty others, started the course in November and defend their dissertations in August 2019. The course comprises 44 credits, taught by experienced lecturers from Fooyin University and DTU, with visiting lecturers from the Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy and the Hanoi Medical University. Graduates will receive a Master of Science in Nursing diploma from Fooyin University.
