KUCHING – Nurses are responsible for providing care and assistance to patients during their treatment and recovery, and are also responsible for promoting good health.
A registered nurse who has passed their registered nursing exam have a high level of responsibility when it comes to their job duties whereby they need to be able to deal with people from all walks of life and all ages, and on top of that, they must be personable and flexible.
“The typical duties of a registered nurse could be something like this – taking patient temperatures, delivering injections, applying bandages, assisting doctors with various procedures, collecting data and so much more,” said SEGi College Sarawak Programme Coordinator of Nursing, Dayang Jakiah Binti Awang Yahya.
She also added that there are many different types of nurses, including those that work solely in the mental health field and those that work in paediatrics, which are just two of the numerous examples of nursing fields where specialized training is needed.
“The most important thing a nurse needs is a quick mind, a friendly smile and the ability to work under pressure.”
With the high demand from across different workforce sectors, nurses can also work at factories, offices, schools, daycare centres, in the military, on cruise ships and many other places where there is a need for medical care.
As the world population continues to increase, so does the demand and number of jobs for skilled nurses.
SEGi College Sarawak, in recognising this shortage, has been offering its government-approved Diploma in Nursing programme since 2008.
Students who pass the final examinations, including the Malaysian Nursing Board examinations, will graduate and be eligible to register with the Malaysian Nursing Board.
“This programme is designed to prepare students to be qualified as a Registered Nurse where it focuses both on the ‘care’ aspects of nursing as well as the ‘science’ of healthcare”.
Students will undergo a complete learning experience involving classroom work and hands-on training in simulation wards, practical room and skills laboratories, as well as earn real life experience during attachments with partner hospitals and community health clinics.
SEGi’s Diploma in Nursing has grown rapidly since 2006, resulting in the Group emerging as one of the best nursing schools in the country.
The programme was also conferred the “Emerging Star” award by the Nursing Board of Malaysia for its nursing excellence – a testimony to the quality of SEGi’s nursing programme.
“SEGi College Sarawak aspires to make its Faculty of Nursing & Allied Health a centre of nursing excellence in this region,” she added.
