In response to the Macao Government's policy, KWNC promotes a holistic and systematic health and nursing education to the local ageing society. Based on the educational philosophy of “From Personhood to Benevolence”, the education emphasizes preventive care for the elderly. Towards this aim, KWNC trains various kinds of nursing talents at different levels. Further, to pursue the objective of integrating teaching, research and social services, academic staff are encouraged to focus their research on the local society and apply the research findings to social services. The Nursing & Health Education Research Centre (NHC), providing elderly services for the public, is established under KWNC after long years of planning. Besides, nursing students are encouraged to go for those related health areas that interest them.
