Nur­tur­ing nurses all the way

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Star Education Fair -

AS the first pri­vate hospi­tal based nurs­ing in­sti­tu­tion in the north­ern re­gion, Lam Wah Ee Nurs­ing Col­lege in Pe­nang has been pro­duc­ing skilled and car­ing nurses since 1986.

At this well-es­tab­lished col­lege, stu­dents ben­e­fit from the ex­cel­lent teach­ing-learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences with ef­fec­tive clin­i­cal prac­tice at the ad­ja­cent MSQH-ac­cred­ited and ISOcer­ti­fied Hospi­tal Lam Wah Ee.

Be­sides aca­demic per­for­mance, em­pha­sis is also given to char­ac­ter build­ing which will have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the nurses’ per­sonal and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment.

All th­ese fac­tors have trans­lated into the stu­dents record­ing a high success rate in the Malaysian Nurs­ing Board Regis­tra­tion Ex­am­i­na­tion over the years.

The three-year Diploma Nurs­ing pro­gramme is not only fully sponsored but grad­u­ates are guar­an­teed em­ploy­ment with Hospi­tal Lam Wah Ee upon grad­u­a­tion.

Reg­is­tered with the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and recog­nised by the Malaysian Nurs­ing Board and Min­istry of Health, the MQAac­cred­ited pro­gramme com­prises six semesters of the­ory in­te­grated with hands-on clin­i­cal prac­tice.

Dur­ing train­ing, stu­dents will re­ceive a gen­er­ous monthly al­lowance, twin shar­ing or three-bed­ded ac­com­mo­da­tion, uni­form and shoes plus meals and med­i­cal care.

The cur­ricu­lum equips stu­dents with knowl­edge and skills based on sci­en­tific prin­ci­ples and stan­dard op­er­at­ing pro­ce­dures to pro­vide qual­ity and holis­tic care to clients in the hospi­tal and com­mu­nity.

To be el­i­gi­ble, one has to at­tain a pass in SPM with cred­its in Ba­hasa Me­layu, English, Math­e­mat­ics/ Ad­di­tional Math­e­mat­ics, Gen­eral Science/Bi­ol­ogy or Chem­istry/ Physics (with a pass in Bi­ol­ogy) and one other re­lated sub­ject.

Can­di­dates have to be sin­gle Malaysians aged be­tween 18 and 28 with a car­ing, pleas­ant and cheer­ful per­son­al­ity as well as good in­ter­per­sonal skills.

Ap­pli­cants must sub­mit their de­tailed re­sume, a re­cent pass­port-sized pho­to­graph, cer­ti­fied copies of their SPM cer­tifi­cate, birth cer­tifi­cate, school leav­ing cer­tifi­cate and iden­tity card to ap­ply for the new in­take in Jan­uary 2019.

In a world of stress­ful liv­ing, health prob­lems are many. And while doc­tors lead the line in treat­ing pa­tients, nurses play an equally im­por­tant role in tend­ing to sick in­di­vid­u­als.

Thus there is a great de­mand for nurses glob­ally.

For fur­ther in­quiries, call the col­lege at 04-6528874 or drop by Booth A47 at the Star Ed­u­ca­tion Fair 2018.

Lam Wah Ee Nurs­ing Col­lege is of­fer­ing a fully sponsored pro­gramme.
