Director's Message

Fascinated by the intricacies of the human body? Perhaps you are excited by the challenge of working in a healthcare environment; or you may enjoy working with people and have a passion to help the less fortunate in society? If you said yes to any of these, then NYP’s School of Health & Social Sciences (SHSS) is the place for you.

We are Singapore’s largest and most well-established institution training registered nurses. We are also the only polytechnic to offer courses in Oral Health Therapy, Social Work and Paramedicine for post O-Levels or Nitec learners.

For post-diploma studies, we offer more than 20 Advanced and Specialist Diplomas in various nursing specialisations and Paramedicine. At SHSS, we emphasise being a family.  One of our experienced faculty members will become your personal mentor. He/she will guide you through your polytechnic years, and help you navigate the path ahead.  You will also see seniors coming back to enrich their junior colleagues, sharing real-world stories and encounters. You will become part of a powerful alumni; fellow NYP graduates are in healthcare and social work institutions across Singapore, and many are successful leaders and professionals making a real impact on our community.

Our school boasts state-of-the-art facilities to simulate operating theatres and wards. You may be interested to see for yourself how telemedicine and consumer technology are changing the practice of nursing within our community. Nanyang Polytechnic also works very closely with our industry partners so that our learners have the opportunity for meaningful attachments, both local and abroad.

With more than 25 years of experience grooming leading healthcare and social work practitioners in Singapore, you can be assured of a quality education at the School of Health & Social Sciences.
