The SingHealth Academy College of Clinical Nursing (CCN) shapes and drives strategies for Clinical Nursing training and education initiatives across SingHealth. CCN oversees the development of Undergraduate Nursing Education, Postgraduate Nursing Education, Continuing Nursing Education and Global Nursing.

Besides driving service excellence, the College advocates life-long learning to enhance nurses’ competencies through continuing education to deliver safe patient care. This includes partnering with hospitals and institutions to develop multidisciplinary programmes that value-add to the nurses’ skillsets. The College also emphasises on faculty development, teaching methodology and the entire learning processes from nursing students to nurses who specialise in their chosen fields of service, education or research. CCN seeks to continuously incorporate new and innovative pedagogy to improve clinical knowledge retention and application that lead to better patient care outcomes.
