Why Students From Sabah And Sarawak Should Apply
1. Students Out of State Will Be Provided With a Place to Stay
One of the benefits of this full nursing scholarship is that sponsored students who’re not from the state of the university they’ll be attending are provided with free accommodation during their studies.
So if you are having trouble looking for accommodation before the start of your course, rest assured that you will be guaranteed a place to stay throughout your studies.
Below is a sneak peek of the accommodation that sponsored students will be provided:
2. You Will Receive Pocket Money Every Month
Besides studying for free, sponsored students will also be given a monthly allowance of RM500, which can be used for entertainment (students need to de-stress too!) or be turned into savings.
As other expenses like food, accommodation and books will be covered as well, you won’t have to pay for anything at all!
3. Experience A New Life Outside of Your Hometown
Sponsored students get to travel out of Sabah and Sarawak to big cities in Peninsula to embark on a new chapter in their lives.
Love an adventure? Staying independently would provide you the freedom to explore a new environment and create lifelong experiences.
This will also be a good chance for you to seek better education and career opportunities for your future.
4. A Job Position Is Open For You When You Graduate
As soon as you graduate from your nursing course, and are certified as a Registered Nurse (RN), you will be guaranteed a full-time job position at Sunway Medical Centre for 5 years.
Sunway Medical Centre was accredited by the Australian Council of Healthcare Standards (ACHS) and is the first hospital in South East Asia to have received such an award.
Working at one of Malaysia’s top leading healthcare facilities will be a great opportunity to boost your resume in order to advance your nursing career.
5. Career Opportunities For Nurses Are Abundant
Did we also mention that the career prospects for nurses are always in high demand?
Nurses enjoy job security even in times of poor economic outlook and hospitals would not be able to function without them.
They get to enjoy high salaries through international employment at countries like Singapore, the United States and Middle East.
Besides that, there is a high demand for certified nurses in Malaysia, including Sabah and Sarawak.
If you wish to contribute to the healthcare industry in your own state, you can also choose to work in any hospitals in your hometown.
What Makes This Nursing Scholarship Different?
1. Competitive Salary for Fresh Graduates
Did you know that the salary for a Entry-Level RN without any experience is around RM14,352 – RM23,628 per year?
That’s the basic annual salary for Malaysian RNs working in either public or private hospitals.
But when you work at one of the leading private healthcare providers in Malaysia, you get to earn an annual salary of up to RM30,000.
On top of this, a Degree graduate will likely obtain a higher salary level. This is the fastest way for RNs to climb up the salary ladder.
2. Future Working Opportunities In Other Cities
There are upcoming plans that Sunway Medical Centre will be making room for future expansion.
If you like the idea of working in a different city, you have the option to transfer to any Sunway Medical Centre branches when you start working upon graduation.
