  • Regulatory Body

    The Singapore Nursing Board (SNB) is established under the Nurses and Midwives Act (Chapter 209) for the purpose of registration and enrolment of nurses, the registration of midwives and the certification of Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) and related matters.  As a regulatory authority for nurses and midwives in Singapore, the SNB is charged with protecting the safety of the public through regulating the standards of education, professional conduct and practice of nurses and midwives in Singapore. Its scope and functions are defined in the Nurses and Midwives Act.

  • Health System

    The Singapore healthcare system comprises public and private healthcare, complemented by rising standards of living, housing, education, medical services, safe water supply and sanitation, and preventive medicine. Singapore healthcare begins with building a healthy population through preventive healthcare programmes and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

    Basic healthcare is available to Singaporeans through subsidised medical services at public hospitals and clinics. Our hospitals and healthcare system will never withhold help to a Singaporean because of financial limitations. Yet our philosophy promotes individual responsibility towards healthy living and medical expenses. MedisaveMedishieldElderShield and Medifund schemes exist to help Singaporeans “co-pay” their medical expenses.

    The Government subsidises healthcare through taxation revenue, providing funds for public hospitals and health promotion. In 2008, Singapore spent about S$ 10.2 billion or 3.9% of GDP on healthcare. Out of this the Government expended S$2.7 billion or 1.0% of GDP on health services.
