Raffles Healthcare Institute is dedicated to providing quality nursing education that develops critical skills and knowledge, fosters professionalism, and maximises the potential of local and international nursing talents.

Leveraging on the nursing expertise and experience in Raffles Medical Group’s stable of clinics and Raffles Hospital, Raffles Healthcare Institute offers a range of educational programmes that focus on clinical practice that equip learners with hands-on learning experience. 

We serve as a placement centre for undergraduate and advanced specialty nursing students from various educational institutions to gain clinical and leadership learning experiences in multi-disciplinary ward settings. Our clinical attachment programme allows the learners to take an active role in the learning process, and aims to meet the students’ learning objectives and support the students in achieving clinical skills competencies. 

The Institute also offers postgraduate nursing education programmes, open to local and foreign nurses, which include continuing professional education and the nursing graduate residency programme which aims at helping the newly-graduated nurse to make the transition to the hospital environment.

At Raffles Healthcare Institute, we firmly believe that lifelong learning and professional training are vital to the growth and development of nurses to help them excel in their roles as caregivers, health educators, counsellors and managers.

The Nursing Orientation Programme is designed for newly-hired nurses to meet and maintain the professional standards and responsibilities of a nurse. It focuses on developing effective decision-making skills (relating to patient safety, risk assessment, prevention and management, and essential nursing skills) and strives to build confidence of the nurses in performing their daily clinical practice, and to facilitate their transition into the hospital environment.

Each student will be assigned to a clinical preceptor and exposed to different clinical settings to have hands-on practice under the guidance and supervision of the senior nurse or nurse instructor. 

On student administration matters, we support the clinical facilitators from the various educational institutions, and work closely with them to ensure learning needs are met.
