The Department of Nursing and Rehabilitation is set up to conduct teaching and research in the field of Nursing and Rehabilitation. However, currently, the Department only focuses on nursing.

The department also works with the Ministry of Health Malaysia and private agencies to provide clinical training to nursing students. In addition, the Department focuses on activities such as student mobility programs and research collaborations.
One of the university's vision and mission is to achieve excellence in research and to strengthen the status of UPM as a research university.
