Bridging the nursing shortage gap

The Nursing and Allied Health Sciences team from SEGi College Kuala Lumpur recently visited Thomson Kota Damansara Hospital to give their final year nursing students the opportunity to attend an interview at the hospital. Suganthi, Low Kim Lian, Parthiban, Jayatheswary, Pritharshini, Prof. Dr. Raili Bin Haji Suhaili and Matron Margeret Wong Ai were among the team’s seven third-semester nursing students (DIN) and four alumni DIN nursing students. 


According to the Malaysian Ministry of Health, the country will experience a significant shortage of nurses in the future years. Malaysia had just 113,787 registered nurses in 2021, resulting in a nurse-to-population ratio of 1:454, and this falls short of the 1:300 nurse-to-population ratio the World Health Organization suggested. 


To address this shortfall, SEGi College Kuala Lumpur’s Nursing and Allied Health Sciences team is devoted to giving their students with opportunities to obtain practical experience in real-world healthcare settings. The recent trip to Thomson Kota Damansara Hospital is just one example of the college’s efforts to prepare students for successful nursing careers.
