It has been close to 10 years now and I have been promoted to Senior Staff Nurse in 2016 and received an outstanding employee award in 2018.”

“University life was so wonderful! Sunway University does not only focus on curriculum but also places emphasis on extracurricular activities. The out-of-classroom activities exposed me to the outside world and diverse cultures as I made friends with international students. It was such an eye-opening experience,” annotated Waon Tyng, our 2010 Nursing Scholarship recipient.

Career advancement

From student nurse to Senior Staff Nurse, Waon Tyng shares how she has progressed in her 10-year journey with Sunway Medical Centre. 

“I started in a general medical surgical ward when I graduated as staff nurse. With much guidance from senior nurses, I was able to perform competently in just 6 months, after which I requested for a transfer to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to learn more about critical care. I’ve worked in the ICU since and joined the in-house critical care training that has equipped me to become an ICU nurse.

“While waiting for my turn for post-basic in critical care, I pursued my Bachelor Degree in Nursing and subsequently completed my post-basic training.”
