The institutions are offering a two-year top-up programme to enable Diploma of Nursing holders to get a Bachelor of Science with honours.

"We see this as an important beginning for what we hope would be a valuable platform for the sharing of knowledge, technological expertise and experience," KPJ chairman Jasimah Hassan says.

"We aspire for this collaboration to bring about new ideas and best nursing and health sciences practices to Malaysia."

The college has established collaborations with several institutions of higher learning since 1995.
It currently has an enrolment of 1,600 students pursuing studies in nursing and health sciences.
With plans to extend its campus in Kota Seriemas in Nilai and a recently opened branch in Johor Baru, the institution hopes to attain university college status by 2010.

University of Hertforshire Vice Chancellor Professor Tim Wilson said he has seen great progress in Malaysiawilson_pnc.jpg over the last 15 years he has been coming here.
"I have seen Malaysia, as a country and a people, develop at an amazing rate in that period," he says.
"And your attitude and approach to education typifies this development."

He adds that a 21st-century health care system requires continuous investment in upgrading in knowledge, which is essential if we are to continue having a healthy society.

"When times are hard, like it is in the West right now, companies cut back on training and stop investing in education," he says.

"This is exactly the time to invest in education and training."

He sees the MoU signing with KPJ as the beginning of huge developments for the institutions. -- By NURJEHAN MOHAMED
