By admin On March 6, 2009 No Comments

British honours nursing degree in Singapore accredited by the Singapore Nursing Board-applications is now open. 

Click this link http://www.snb.gov.sg/html/SNB_UsefulLinks.html and when you scroll to the bottom of the list you will make an amazing discovery.

You will find “Bachelor of Science (Hons) (Nursing) by University of Sunderland and Harriet Business School.”

What I want to highlight is that it is the only one with Honours.

Therefore I would say “Special opportunities in Singapore can be  found here for all registered nurses (local and foreigner)”.  Why do I say that?

University of Sunderland has been named “Best New University in England” by Guardian University Guide, May 2007, and ”Top 3 amongst the new creme de la creme in providing superior teaching quality” by Times Higher Education, May 2005.

“Registered Nurses with Honours Degree  and Operating Theatre Qualification are in high demand throughout the world…” Dr Kathryn King, University of Sunderland.

In other words they have better opportunities to go into any three broad areas: Management, Clinical and Education.

In addition, they also have better opportunities to move upwards to be a Director, Advanced Practice Nurse or Principal Nurse Educator.

What are the special benefits of this course?

  • First and Only British Honours Nursing Degree Accredited by Singapore Nursing Board
  • Post-basic Certificate in Operating Theatre Nursing awarded by Tan Tock Seng Hospital
  • Free mini computer laptop, free operating theatre course, free stethoscope (Terms & Conditions apply).
  • Identical degree as conferred in the University of Sunderland, UK campus
  • Teaching staff include faculty from the University of Sunderland, UK and experienced local lecturers approved by the Singapore Nursing Board
  • Option to attend graduation ceremony in the Campus or the University

So whether you are one of those with nursing jobs in Singapore or you are from other countries but want to work and study in Singapore you are welcome to…

Nursing Induction Programme To Work In Singapore And Degree Programme To Equip Nurses For Management Roles

By admin On January 24, 2009 No Comments

Dear Nurses,

OK, first let’s just relax and enjoy a short slideshow

Which nurse would like to have a good career?

What should a good career be like?

I hope you would agree that it should have the following three elements:

1) High Salaries

Singapore graduates earn more than S$20,000 in the first year as a Registered Nurse.

This salary is many times higher than many professional occupations let’s say in India / China such as let’s say lawyers, doctors, engineers…

So can we say that this is a Rare Opportunity that you should not miss?

2) Very Promising Job Outlook

Nursing jobs for Registered Nurses are expected to be very good.

There is a shortage of nurses in India, China, Dubai, Canada, United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore and many other countries all over the world.

3) Good Advancement Prospect

A qualified Registered Nurse can go into any three broad areas: Management, Clinical and Education.

In addition, the Registered Nurse can move upwards to be a Director, Advanced Practice Nurse or Principal Nurse Educator.

Harriet Career Consultancy (HCC) works in collaboration with Harriet Educational Group (HEG) to provide both Singapore and Foreign-educated medical professionals with good career opportunites in Singapore.

Nurses can opt for our Nurses’ Work in Singapore Recruitment / Induction Programme, or our Nurses’ Work & Study in Singapore Programme, both of which are recognised and accredited with the Singapore Nursing Board.

Nursing Jobs Available In Singapore Due To Shortage Of Nurses

By admin On January 22, 2009 No Comments

Nursing is such a noble job. I admire people who have a calling to be a nurse.  They make a difference to people’s life.  All I have to do is observe how nurses love helping people and how they don’t fear hard work.

To qualify as a nurse, a person has to get at least a nursing diploma and then has to become registered in their country.  Also trainee nurses are supervised in the early stages of their employment.

Nursing jobs cover a wide scope. A nurse can care for the aged and do you know that retirees require three times the healthcare services?
 
Nurses are also needed to care for children, or the disabled. Other nurses care for those suffering from mental health problems whilst other nurses work as operating theatre assistants.

Some nurses become midwives and yet others are in palliative care.

Thus nurses are in short supply all over the world, including Singapore.

So I’d like to invite all nurses out there to come and work in Singapore and all nurses who are already working in Singapore to stay on, take up a BSc Degree in Nursing (Honours) course and get promoted to management levels.
 
A qualified Registered Nurse can go into any three broad areas; Management, Clinical and Education. 

In addition, the Registered Nurse can move upwards to be a Director, Advanced Practice Nurse or Principal Nurse Educator.

If you are a foreign trained nurse and dream of working in Singapore and even to UK later on, you are invited to send your Cover letter and Curriculum Vitae to vincentsiew[@]ymail.com


Palliative Care Nurses - Shortage In Singapore

By admin On January 22, 2009 No Comments

Singapore is facing a shortage of nurses.  One specific field is palliative care specialist nurses.

As of 4th September 2008, there are only about 141 nurses out of the 18,000 practicing nurses, who are specifically trained in palliative care, out of which only three are palliative care specialist nurses.

Training for palliative care specialist nurses is not available in Singapore, so Ms Sylvia Lee who is one of the three palliative care specialist nurses, did a post-masters training in the States, in New York.

The training that an advanced palliative care nurse has to go through is highly specialised and different compared to that of a palliative care nurse at the advanced diploma or certificate level.

At the advanced practice level, components like advanced physical assessment and advanced pharmacology are done at an advanced rather than just at a general level.

Thus with all the advanced training and skills acquired a palliative care specialist nurse can provide independent consultation work.

Currently, in Singapore the Dover Park Hospice and Nanyang Polytechnic offers a Certificate in palliative care nursing and an Advanced Diploma, respectively.

Although demand for palliative care nurses is expected to increase over the next few years, it remains to be seen if there will be enough supply to meet this demand.

A palliative care nurse job is a very challenging and emotionally draining job and thus could deter more nurses from joining this field.

Many of the patients that Sylvia deals with daily are nearing the end of their lives.  However, her aim as a palliative care nurse is to try to improve the quality of life during the remainder of their lives.

Despite the difficulty of the job, Sylvia says she derives a great sense of satisfaction from interacting with her patients.

And motivating her to push on…  Read the Full Story from 938live.sg

What do I need to do to read an RSS Feed? RSS Feed Readers and News Aggregators
