Malaysia’s largest nursing school operator, Masterskill Education Group Bhd, will be sending more of its graduates to serve at hospitals in Singapore, following an increase in demand from the country.
Masterskill Student Affairs Deputy Vice-Chancellor Datuk Dr Ahmad Aman said this was due to positive feedback from many hospitals there, regarding the service given by graduates from the private university college.
“They contacted us directly to request for more of our graduates to work there, saying our graduates are knowledgeable. As we all know, our programmes are recognised by the higher education ministry, itself,” he said.
He was speaking after a red rose presentation ceremony from Masterskill to 200 nurses at the Pantai Hospital in Cheras, here on Wednesday, in conjunction with International Nurses Day.
A total of 11,440 roses were distributed at various hospitals in the Klang Valley, including the Kajang, Putrajaya and Serdang hospitals.
“The objective of this exercise is to show Masterskill’s appreciation to all nurses for their dedication and hardwork in providing healthcare services to patients, and recognise nursing as a respected healthcare profession,” he said.
Meanwhile, Masterskill student Fazilah Niru, 24, who was undergoing practical training at the hospital, said the public should be more aware and appreciative of nursing as a selfless profession.
