Incoming School Visit on 2016 – King’s College Past Event
On 6 May 2016, about 25 students of King’s College were very happy to learn that they had become the very first group of students from boys’ school who came to visit our School! Teachers and students were warmly welcomed by our Assistant Professor, Dr. Janet Wong. Dr. Wong began the mini-talk with an introduction of our five-year full-time Bachelor of Nursing programme. The broad-based curriculum structure which provided a well balance between the areas of nursing, biological, behavioural and social sciences was shown during the talk. The career prospects of nursing was also introduced. Dr. Wong further gave a detailed presentation about the distinctive features of our School, including our aims at providing students with all-rounded education as well as the various innovative teaching and learning approaches adopted in our programme.
Our current Year 1 student, Mr Joe Ho, who was also a graduate of King’s College had great excitement in sharing with our visiting students about his University life at HKU, such as his memorable experience of joining the O Camp. Besides, he shared his exceptional view on being a male nurse and his reasons for studying nursing at HKU.
Apart from the mini-talk and student sharing session, a guided tour to our Nursing Skills Laboratory at Pauline Chan Building was arranged for the students. They were greatly impressed by the state-of-the-art audio-visual simulation equipment in our laboratory, such as SimMan and SimBaby and enjoyed very much the demonstrations of some basic physical assessments and clinical skills given by our Assistant Lecturer, Ms Joyce Chong and Mr Edmond Chan. At the end of the visit, teachers and students of King’s College showed appreciation of our warm welcome and the arrangements we made for them.
