In recent years, the College has developed actively, at the same time KWNC operational standard and teaching quality continued to raise.

She expressed gratitude to KWNC teachers and students especially for their contribution during the epidemic. Whether it was the Macao universal nucleic acid test, nucleic acid test for key groups, or the volunteer work for yellow code or red code zones, they responded enthusiastically and provided support.

Especially during the epidemic at the end of last year, KWNC nursing students actively participated in supporting the operation of the Community Treatment Centre (Macau Dome) and demonstrated the College\'s educational philosophy of ‘From Personhood to Benevolence’ to the society with practical actions.

The opening of the new Islands District Medical Complex Campus is a crucial milestone in the development of KWNC. Ms Ao Ieong U also expressed her best wishes to the College for starting its second century, hoping that KWNC can better utilise current ideal conditions, upgraded resources and facilities, optimise the functions of the new campus, and train more nursing professionals for Macao.
