For Bindeeya Chandran, nursing is something special. This 23-year-old from Johor Baru feels that there is more compassion in nursing compared with doctors, who "just prescribe" medicine.
 
"We are more for the patients. Everyone knows it is a noble profession," she said after officially receiving her nurse’s cap when she and 619 others graduated from the KPJ International College of Nursing and Health Sciences recently.
 
Bindeeya, who lists the iconic Florence Nightingale as one of her inspirations, added that a strong interest in biology and her parents wishes, were other factors in her becoming a nurse.
 
Now attached to the Johor Specialist Hospital, where she endured a stressful first week, she dreams of opening a nursing home for the elderly because they are an "interesting" group.
 
Like Bindeeya, Azri lzhar, who graduated with a diploma in physiotherapy, recommends more people to enter this field as it is a way to give back to the community.
 
Currently attached at the Tawakal Hospital, Kuala Lumpur, Azri had wanted to become a doctor. "I couldn’t because of my grades. Physiotherapy was, however, a good option," he said, adding that the profession is more than just running towards an injured athlete, but helping people of all ages afflicted with all kinds of ailments.
 
Nurul Nasihah, 21, aspired to become a nurse since she was in secondary school, because she likes to help people. And she could not wait to do so, which was why she enrolled at KPJ College after her Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia."You are guaranteed a job," she said, adding that she hopes to become a counsellor in the Damansara Specialist Hospital where she is attached to now.
