The Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, commenced the Bachelor of Science (BSc) (Nursing) programme in August 2006. The BSc (Nursing) degree is a 3 year undergraduate programme. Students who have performed well throughout the programme and achieved a minimum cumulative average point of 3.2 are eligible to apply to proceed to the Honours year leading to BSc (Nursing)(Honours).
