Known as the "backbone of healthcare," the entire system would be incomplete without Nurses, with their presence accounting for more than half of the healthcare workers. As one of the most honorable professions, nurses play a defining role in touching patients' lives and providing solace to them in need. Unfortunately, although many nurses often say that their inclination towards empathy and care drives their contentment in their roles, they are sometimes overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated in the working world.
If you've been working as a nurse for quite some time and are unsure where the road will take you down the line, consider furthering your education. A degree in Nursing will expose you to ample opportunities that will enhance your overall job satisfaction. You will get to pursue new leadership roles like health service manager or nurse manager, and earning a promotion allows you to take on new responsibilities and complex tasks that challenge you to grow in your career. Of course, with greater responsibilities comes greater reward - you will also earn more salary-wise, which will feel incredibly rewarding given the common fact that nurses sometimes suffer 'work fatigue'. Getting a bachelor's degree from an accredited nursing program will also open doors for you to gain the opportunity to work overseas, which will broaden your worldview in becoming a better professional and a more well-rounded person.
24-year-old Abigail from Nigeria decided to further her studies by taking a bachelor's in nursing at MAHSA University instead of a diploma since she knows there's a higher demand for nurses who graduate with a bachelor's in healthcare. "In the olden days, a diploma was the first choice, but because now we are advancing in technology and an array of exposure in different areas of expertise is needed, the healthcare industry prefers hiring those with specialized knowledge and technical skills. Hence, hospitals would look for bachelor's graduates as their first choice. So my decision is 100% based on the value that a bachelor will benefit me."
Yong, who happens to be Abigail's peer, also shares the same voice when it comes to furthering a bachelor's degree. "After SPM, I took a foundation in science at Johor in Metropoint College. Once I finished my studies, I surveyed many nursing schools and found out that MAHSA University is the best nursing school to gain the necessary skills needed for today's job market. Through a bachelor's programme, we'll get more opportunities to learn about management and apply more agility as a nurse."

Regardless of all the advantages that come with upgrading your educational level, it is also challenging to balance out student life if you're currently working as a nurse. Suppose you're now working on a shift basis; in that case, you can opt for a flexible study mode in MAHSA's Bachelor of Science (Hons) Nursing programme, to manage your time effectively and ensure that you can excel in both aspects. If you feel like attending physical classes is difficult for you and you need more flexibility, MAHSA also has an Online Distance Learning (ODL) programme, that gives you a chance to learn at your own pace entirely from an online learning platform.
