The visiting delegates included Chairman of the Association of Hong Kong Chinese Middle School and Principal of Pui Ching Middle School (Hong Kong) Tam Yat Yuk, Principal of Fanling Kau Yan College Yau Kit Ying, Principal of HKTA the Yuen Yuen Institute No.1 Secondary School Man Ching Fan, Principal of ELCHK Lutheran Secondary School Liang Kwun Fun, Principal of Lingnan Dr. Chung Wing Kwong Memorial Secondary School Chu Pui Lui, Principal of the Mission Covenant Church Holm Glad College Lee Lap Chung, Director of Further Studies of Baptist Wing Lung Secondary School Fok Pui Shan, Director of Further Studies of Yan Chai Hospital Lim Por Yen Secondary School Cheung Ka Man, Director of Further Studies of Christian Alliance College Chiu Ho Man, Director of Further Studies of Fanling Kau Yan College Wong Wa Chun, Director of Further Studies of Lingnan Dr. Chung Wing Kwong Memorial Secondary School Cheung Yat Lung and Director of Further Studies of the Mission Covenant Church Holm Glad College Wong Cheuk Hang.
During the exchange session, KWNC President Van Iat Kio presented to the delegation the College's philosophy, status, development and quality assurance of teaching and learning. President Van indicated that the College is gradually increasing the number of students in response to the government policies and social demands for the development of nursing profession. It is hoped that through the meeting with the delegates, more effective discussions and exchanges would be made especially on the strategies in raising interests among students from neighbouring regions to study in Macao and thus ease the shortage of nursing manpower across the regions. Programme Leader Ng Wai I explained to the delegation the characteristics and setting of the College's Bachelor of Science in Nursing Programme as well as the relevant supportive services provided for students. Active discussions on the education system, students' career development and nurses' registration system of the two cities were made.
The delegates then paid visits to the College's Main Campus and Mong Ha Campus and spoke highly of the laboratory equipment and campus facilities. They believed that the well-equipped environment will benefit students from getting prepared for their career upon graduation.
