Best Wishes to Four Exchange Students at Home After Completing 100-Day Exchange Studies at KWNC

  • Students expressing their feelings about their exchange study experiences

  • Exchange students from GZUCM presenting souvenirs to KWNC

The four-month exchange studies in Kiang Wu Nursing College of Macau (KWNC) for the four students from the School of Nursing of Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (GZUCM) has come to its final days. The College therefore organized a farewell ceremony for them, where everyone expressed their heartfelt feelings.

Having had their exchange studies in Year 3, the four students said they had the most memorable moments in the elective subject "Life and Death Education". They could still remember the mental shock they had in a session about "experiencing death", through which they have learnt how to cherish people around them. In addition, they also had high remarks for the community nursing in Macao as they appreciated the comprehensive services given by local medical personnel to the older people including undergoing interviews at the household plus the continuous follow up. Such services fully embody the care to older people in the community, which is very precious reference to bring home.

Being thankful to their teachers, students also expressed sincere gratitude to their teachers and the College. Vice President Xing Zhihong wished the students their best and hoped that they can extend their experiences when they go back to their university. It is also hoped that the collaboration between two institutions will go on and on.

Other College's representatives present at the farewell ceremony included Executive Officer of Education Department Associate Professor Tsang Sau Mui, BSN Programme Leader Assistant Professor Ng Wai I, Deputy Programme Leader Lecturer Wang Sichen, Responsible Technologist of Logistics Division Leong Kam Lan, Academy Secretary Fong Oi Han and Student Affairs Coordinator Lou Chi Kin.

Since 2012, KWNC has been establishing collaborations and student exchanges with Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and this year was the fifth run. The student exchange programme aimed at facilitating academic exchanges between the two institutions. KWNC students who are studying in Year 4 of the "Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Programme" are eligible to apply for exchange to GZUCM for studying Chinese Medicine Nursing. Those who successfully achieve the requirements can obtain an associate diploma in Chinese Medicine Nursing.
