Master of Nursing in Hong Kong.

  1. not sure if this is an appropriate place to post it and therefore, feel free to move it into more appropriate section.

    i will be completing my nursing degree @ ryerson university (toronto) in year 2008 and i am extremely interested in applying for a master program at a university in hong kong.

    do you have any suggestions?

    thanks!

    Hi, Eric

    I'm from Hong Kong too but live in New York City, NY for the past 20+ yrs. I love Hong Kong and visit there every 2 years with my husband (my in-law still live there). Just curious why do you want to do your master in nursing in Hong Kong? Do you plan to work there afterward? If you are, I hear the nursing salary is extremely low in HK compares to US and Canada plus their living standard is very expensive.

    Just my 2 cents!

    thanks for your quick response. the reason why i wanna study there is because i love hk so much. whether i want to work there or not, i'm still deciding.

    I am living in hong kong and just went to find out about enrolling in the BSN program at HKU and you must speak chinese (cantonese preferred) to enroll in the nursing program. HKU is an English speaking university, but if you can't access your patients then how can you nurse. Any one about 40-45 or younger here speaks at least SOME English, most pretty well. I was here for over a week before I encountered anyone who didnt speak english. But since so many of the pt's are elderly you must speak cantonese and/or mandarin.
