DEAN’S FOREWORD

Welcome to the Faculty of Medicine and Health


Sciences.
Congratulations on making the decision to embark
your
personal and career development by joining the
Bachelor of Nursing Programme with Honours,
UNIMAS. Nursing education is transformative. It
encourages aspiration, it instills confidence and
self worth, it open the mind, and it offers new
perspectives to you.

You have the opportunity to explore new


knowledge in both theory and practice. The
educational approach in this faculty is very much
student centered as the trust of learning has
become not so much to absorb facts and
information but to develop the necessary skills to
find new knowledge. You are challenged to acquire
positive attitude, knowledge and skills and apply
these to be a competent professional nurse.

During the course of your study you will have the opportunity to be placed
at hospitals, health centers, organisations and villages. These placements
are meant to expose you to various health care settings and support
systems. You will learn to identify the factors that influence health and
the needs of the population both in the rural as well as in the urban
areas.

In addition to the core courses, you need to take the generic and elective
courses. These courses are meant to widen your horizon so that you will
be able to present yourself professionally.

In this handbook, there is a list of names of key-faculty personnel who will


be able to assist you, so please do not hesitate to contact them.

I expect the time you spend in this faculty to be dynamic and rewarding. I
wish you all the best in your endeavour.

Prof Dr Haji Ahmad Hata Rasit

1.0 INTRODUCTION TO UNIVERSITI MALAYSIA SARAWAK (UNIMAS)

1.1 UNIMAS Vision

The University‟s vision is to establish itself as an exemplary


university of internationally acknowledged stature and as a
scholarly institution of choice for both students and
academics through the pursuit of excellence in teaching,
research and scholarship.

1.2 UNIMAS Mission

The University‟s mission is to generate, disseminate and apply


knowledge strategically and innovatively to enhance the
quality of the nation‟s culture and prosperity of its people.

1.3 Brief History of UNIMAS

Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) was officially


incorporated on 24 December 1992. UNIMAS is the eighth
public Malaysian university, established just after the
declaration of Vision 2020. The challenges outlined to achieve
this Vision have given UNIMAS the unique opportunity not
simply to respond to change but to become a significant agent
and intellectual catalyst of change nationally.

The University took in its pioneer students numbering 118 in


1993 with the opening of the Faculty of Social Sciences and
Faculty of Resource Science and Technology. In 1994, the
University moved to its temporary campus in Kota
Samarahan. The University‟s temporary campus at Kota
Samarahan was officially launched by the ex-Prime Minister,
YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Merdeka Day, 31 August
1993.

Over the years, the University has developed rapidly with the
establishment of eight faculties, three institutes and six
centers. UNIMAS is a university committed to being
contemporary in character and forward looking in outlook in
developing its education system. Since its inception in 1992,
UNIMAS has been dedicated to educating students who are
not only highly knowledgeable and skilled in their respective
fields, but also individuals who are well-rounded, practical as
well as rich in culture and positive values. Efforts for
enhancing the quality of teaching-learning were intensified,
supported and strengthened with efforts to improve the
quality of the management processes related to teaching and
learning.

Quality is the basis of all products and processes at UNIMAS.


Quality-assurance processes ensure efficient course delivery

and student learning. UNIMAS was awarded ISO quality
certificate by SIRIM as recognition of the high quality in the
management of academic activities from the intake of new
students to the award of degrees to graduates.

The University is placing great emphasis on the development


of ICT and has successful integrated ICT in all aspects of
teaching and learning as well as administration.

educational centre and as institution of choice for students
and the community and capable of achieving the challenges of
change.

2.2 Educational Philosophy

3.0 DEPARTMENT OF NURSING

3.1 INTRODUCTION

3.1.1 VISION

UNIMAS envisages its Nursing Programme to be both


nationally and internationally recognised and the
programme of choice for students and academicians.

3.1.2 MISSION

The UNIMAS Nursing Programme is committed to


provide a wide array of opportunities in education, and
research. It aims to develop and shape nursing, to
remain contemporary, competitive, and forward in
nature.

Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 3


3.1.3 PHILOSOPHY

The UNIMAS Nursing Programme is committed to excel in


nursing education, research and practice. It views health as
complex and dynamic, and the client as a holistic
individual. Students in this programme learn in an
environment that stimulates intellectual inquiry and
creativity which encourages them to be problem-solvers and
life-long learners.

3.2 The Bachelor of Nursing with Honours Programme

The Bachelor of Nursing with Honours Programme has been designed


to:-

Enable pre-registration nursing students to acquire a sound


knowledge and skills for beginning professional nursing
practice and post-registration students to strengthen and
broaden their knowledge of nursing and its related and
supporting disciplines.

Provide an appropriate educational foundation from which


successful students may proceed to post-graduate studies in
nursing.

In keeping with the educational aim of UNIMAS to provide education


for capability, the nursing program values creativity in developing
human potential and encourages its students to be both critical
thinkers and independent learners. In order to promote the
achievement of these attributes, students are expected to be active
participants in the teaching-learning process through their
involvement in all of the program‟s educational activities, e.g.,
lectures, discussions, seminars, clinical sessions, presentations,
problem-based learning sessions, as well as independent or self-
directed learning.

Underpinning the programme is the faculty‟s commitment to the


concept of holistic health care. As a basis for the application of this
concept to professional nursing practice, a core curriculum has been
evolved which consists of five inter-woven strands namely basic
medical sciences, nursing sciences and clinical nursing, humanities,
social sciences with ICT and entrepreneurial skills incorporated in
all components. The content of the programme also takes into
account the current national and global trends in health care,
changing disease patterns, and recent advances in medical sciences
and technology. In light of these on-going developments, the
programme encourages and supports the importance of continuing
education and life-long learning for its students and its academic
staff.

classes and clinical sessions (whether in the Clinical Skill
Development Laboratory or in Hospital or Health Care setting) is
COMPULSORY. In the event of an absence due to sickness, a Medical
Certificate must be submitted to the relevant course Coordinator.

reason may result in a student being and/or either:-

(a) referred for disciplinary action;


(b) barred from taking the end of semester examination in any
course; and/or
(c) awarded a failing grade in any course.

6.4 Deferment of Studies

6.4.1 Consideration for the Deferment of Registration

A student who is sick for an extended period can apply to the


Dean of the Faculty to defer his/her registration. For all such
cases, an appropriate verification from a registered medical
doctor is required. In special cases where the verification is
not from a registered medical doctor, application for
postponement of registration can only be considered if the
student has initially sought medical treatment. In psychiatric
cases, approval for course re-registration will be subjected to
Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 8
the recommendation of the doctor involved.

The medical doctors who provide treatment and verification


for students must be from the Ministry of Health, the
University or from the University‟s panel of doctors.

All decisions relating to such applications are made at the


Faculty level.

6.4.2 Consideration for the deferment of sitting for


examination

A student who is sick or faces other serious problems during


the examination period must apply to the Dean of the Faculty
to defer his/her sitting for the examination. However, any
application for a deferment must be made within 48 hours
of the examination.

Any application to defer the sitting of any examinations on


medical grounds must be made with verification from the
registered medical doctor who is treating the student. The
attending doctor must be from the Ministry of Health, the
University or from the University‟s panel of doctors.

6.5 Duration of Studies

6.5.1 The duration for pre-registration programme requires a


minimum of four (4) years of full-time study.

6.5.2 The duration for post-registration programme requires a


minimum of two and half (2½) years of full-time study.

7.0 PLAGIARISM

Plagiarism is generally defined as the deliberate incorporation in an essay or


paper of material drawn from the work of another person without proper
acknowledgement.

All students enrolled in the Bachelor of Nursing Science with Honours


Programme will be issued with a Referencing Guide to assist them to
acknowledge, in an academically appropriate way, all materials drawn from
the work of other people.

The University, the Faculty and the Nursing Department view plagiarism
very seriously. Any student who is found to have plagiarized will be severely
penalized (for example, being barred from sitting for examinations, having
passing grades cancelled, etc.)

Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 9


8.0 THE MENTOR-MENTEE SYSTEM

8.1 Purpose

The purpose of the Faculty‟s mentor-mentee system is to provide


guidance to students on academic matters and to foster a close and
constructive professional relationship between students and the staff
of the Faculty. While all lecturers in the Faculty are potentially
academic advisors to all students who seek their advice, each lecturer
(mentor) is assigned particular responsibility to a small group of
students (mentees).

8.2 Role of Mentors

In essence, the key roles of mentors are to:-

a) Assist their mentees to gain an understanding of the


curriculum, the faculty‟s expectations of its students and the
University‟s requirements (for example, in respect of its
student registration system);
b) Provide advice and guidance to students regarding academic
matters;
c) Provide feedback and opportunities for reflective review
following the release of End-of-Semester results;
d) Assist students in solving problems and, when necessary,
refer them to an appropriate authority or resource person;
e) Perform any other functions as required by the Faculty.

8.3 Responsibilities of Mentees

All Students are encouraged to meet with their mentors, on a regular


basis, to discuss their learning progress including any academic
problems encountered.

8.4 Implementation of the Mentor-Mentee System

Although each student will be assigned to a mentor, students may


seek advice from other academics with whom they feel comfortable.
Mentors and mentees are expected to meet on a regular basis, for
example, approximately three to four times per year under normal
circumstances. Appointments for meetings between mentor and
mentee are usually arranged for a time and place suitable to both. A
written report of each meeting is prepared and all reports are filed in
the students‟ Faculty files.

Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 10


9.0 STUDENT PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

9.1 Continuous Assessment

Students‟ progress is continuously monitored throughout the


programme and feedback regarding their performance will be
provided on a regular basis. In most courses, specified percentages of
the marks from written assignments, seminar presentations and mid-
semester examination (or periodic formative assessments [PFAs])
contribute to the final marks for the course. This system values and
rewards student‟s learning efforts throughout the semester rather
than concentrating only on the outcome of one final examination. In
addition to the assessment of knowledge, understanding and
psychomotor skills, continuous assessment also takes into account
student‟s attitudes, self discipline, and on-going patterns of learning
behaviour.

9.2 End-of Semester Examinations

In many courses, student‟s performances are assessed both


continuously and by means of a final examination at the end of the
semester.

Your attention is drawn to the importance of checking the


course assessment details for each semester’s courses at the
beginning of each semester. This information is set out in the
course information sheet. The relevant information is given to
students at the beginning of each semester by the course
coordinator.

9.3 Professional Examination

Professional examinations will be conducted at the end of the second


year and final year of the programme. External examiners will be
invited for these examinations.

9.4 UNIMAS Grading System

11.0 GENERIC AND ELECTIVE COURSES

11.1 Generic Courses

Courses under this category are designed to develop students with


positive attitudes and culturally acceptable behaviour and
personality traits. These courses also encourage the development of a
balance between autonomy and cooperation, assertiveness and
working independently, without direction from higher authorities,
and the willingness to work as a team member in achieving common
objectives.

Generic courses are compulsory for all undergraduates at UNIMAS.


They are also referred to as the “University Core Courses” (Kursus
Teras Universiti), which underscores the fact that they are not trivial
courses. Certain Generic courses will require that the student meet
the minimum level of competency. Those that do not meet with these
pre-requisites are required to take Remedial Courses (Kursus
Pengukuhan). The current minimum number of credits required for
Generic courses is 12 credits.

Transfer of credits may also be considered to a maximum of about a


third of the total course credits for Generic Courses (i.e., up to 4
credits) provided that the student can supply evidence that he/she
has previously attended similar courses with satisfactory results (i.e.,
at least the equivalent of grade B-) from institutions recognised by
UNIMAS.

Grades obtained in Generic courses are considered when calculating


the student‟s CGPA.

Refer to Appendix A for details on the courses offered under this


category.

11.2 Elective Courses

Elective courses are additional courses, which all UNIMAS students


must take. These courses are aimed at enabling students to acquire
reasonable in-depth knowledge in fields other than that of their
chosen field. Consequently, University Elective courses are more
challenging compared to the Generic courses.

Even though UNIMAS students can choose to take any course that
interests them, students at FMHS are only allowed to choose from
sets of courses that have been endorsed by the faculty. This is
because the programmes at FMHS use a calendar system that is
different from those used by the rest of the university. In addition,
the nature of the training involved in the preparation of FMHS
graduates makes it necessary that these courses are to be taken in
an orderly and timely manner. It is virtually impossible to take these
courses after Year 2, as students will be heavily involved in the
Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 20
various clinical postings/rotations.

Students must complete a total of 9 credits. Grades obtained in


University Elective courses are considered when calculating the
student‟s CGPA.

Refer to Appendix B for details on the courses offered under this


category. Further details on the sets of endorsed courses will also be
provided during the orientation session at FMHS or on the faculty
notice boards.

11.3 Remedial Courses (“Kursus Pengukuhan”)

Students that do not meet with the minimal requirements for


Generic courses are required to take the following courses:-

Course Code Course Title


TMX 1010 End-User Computing
PBI 0011 Preparatory English, Level I
PBI 0022 Preparatory English, Level II

The objective of this category of courses is to strengthen/increase the


students‟ level of proficiency/competency. Students will only get a
Pass (L) or Fail (F). These courses are not considered in CGPA
calculations.

Refer to Appendix C for details on the courses offered under this


category.

The criteria for assessing whether a student meets the minimal


requirements for Remedial Courses are as follows:-

i) IT Placement Test (“Ujian Penempatan IT”) (UPIT)

All FMHS students are required to sit for the UPIT.

Those who failed the test must register for TMX 1011 (End User
Computing/Komputan Pengguna), which is offered only in Semester
1 of every academic calendar. Upon scoring a Pass (L), the student
will be exempted from TMX 1010. However, they are still required to
register for TMX 2012 (IT Tools for Knowledge Workers/Alat TM
untuk Pekerja Ilmuan) offered only in Semester 2 of every academic
calendar.

ii) Malaysian University English Test (MUET)

All UNIMAS students who scored Band 1-3 in MUET will have to
register for Preparatory English (Level 1) in Semester 1 of the
2009/2010 academic session.

Upon scoring a Pass (L) in Preparatory English (Level 1), the student
must then register for Preparatory English (Level 2) in Semester 2
Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 21
Those who scored Band 4-6 in MUET are allowed to skip the
Preparatory English course and register for the English Elective
courses.

Note:
If a student obtains Band 4-6 in another attempt at MUET, after
entering UNIMAS, he/she can apply for an exemption from
Preparatory English Level II, and advance to the English Elective
courses.

All UNIMAS students are required to register and successfully


complete the Preparatory English courses and/or two out of six
Elective English courses during their studies at UNIMAS.

11.4 Registration For Generic and Elective Courses

Prior to registering, refer to the schedule provided for the list of


courses for that particular semester.

The number of credits for each semester has been pre-determined


by the faculty.

Registration for Generic and University Elective courses is done at


the beginning of a new semester.

Students must pass all of the courses listed. Otherwise, the course
will have to be repeated until a passing grade is obtained.

11.5 Rules and Regulations

All FMHS students are expected to:-

a) Take responsibility for meeting all the Generic and University


Elective courses‟ requirement.
b) Inform the Academic office of any irregularities that may
prevent them from graduating. This must be done at the earliest
opportunity.

UNIMAS has adopted a formal policy about attendance at all


scheduled teaching sessions (i.e. lectures, laboratory sessions,
clinical sessions, tutorials and presentations). Students will be
barred from sitting for the final examination of any courses
concerned if he/she has failed to attend a minimum of 90% of the
total scheduled teaching sessions.

If a student falls sick and cannot attend the scheduled teaching


session, he/she is expected to inform the lecturer concerned at least
an hour before the scheduled activity followed by submission of a
medical certificate at the next scheduled session.

The use of purchased air tickets will NOT be entertained as a valid


Nursing Handbook 2011/2012….. 22
reason for re-scheduling of presentations or examinations.

Generic and University Elective examinations are synchronised


throughout the university and are scheduled to be held as follows:-

a) Mid Semester Examination - Week 7 or Week 8 of each


semester.
b) End of Semester Examination – UNIMAS Examination Week, at
the end of each semester.

licking lip provocatively, hand signals or sign language denoting
sexual activity;
c) Visual – Eg. showing pornographic materials, offensive images,
drawing sex-based sketches or writing letters, sexual exposure;

pinching, stroking, brushing up against someone, hugging, kissing,
fondling, sexual assault.
