Being someone who loves interacting with people, Ivy Ting Sing Yi (Subang Jaya, Group 1/2017) wanted to have a career that was both interesting and challenging. The nursing profession allowed her to work with people from various backgrounds. It also keeps her on her feet which an office job would not offer. One of the reasons she decided to study nursing was because she believes that a nurse can make a difference in one’s life through compassionate care. Ivy selected IMC because of the availability of partner hospitals’ sponsorship that guaranteed her employment upon graduation. Ivy is sponsored by Sunway Medical Centre to study in IMC.
During her studies, Ivy was able to gain a variety of knowledge and skills through private and government hospitals as students are exposed to clinical posting early on in their first semester. This has helped students gain some experience of working in hospital settings. Apart from that, IMC Lecturers and Clinical Instructors provided consistent support to students which allowed them to work independently during their clinical postings.
