Cheapest Place to Study Nursing | Daily Express Online

DURING a very slow economy, most workers struggle to make ends meet. Some have lost their jobs, some have seen their income decline, and some cannot stretch their income to fund their children’s education.

If your parents are unable to fund your education, don’t lose hope. There are still a few courses that are available for free. Look for such courses. When you don’t have money, don’t look for PTPTN loans. You don’t know if you will get a job when you finish your studies.

How are you going to repay your loan? If you don’t pay, you will be blacklisted. You can’t buy a car, you can’t buy a house, and you can’t travel abroad. Look for courses that can offer you guaranteed employment after graduation. This will ultimately help you support your family.

You can also help your other siblings to continue their studies. Are there “free” courses in this world?

Yes there is! Let’s take a look at these courses and where you can study for free. I have focused on nursing careers this week because it is a career that is in high demand not only in Malaysia but also overseas. We will look at other similar careers that you can study for free in our upcoming articles.

Option 1: Study in government nursing schools for free

The cheapest college to study nursing is to apply to Ministry of Health Nursing Colleges in Malaysia. There are many colleges all over Malaysia. Normally, nominations are solicited through mass media such as newspapers and social media. However, you can also contact the nearest nursing college and inquire about the next admission:-

You don’t have to look for a job. However, you are not the only one applying to public nursing schools. Hundreds of students from all over the country will apply for the limited number of places. If you have the necessary qualifications, you must give yourself the opportunity. Please apply when applications are invited.

Option 2: Colleges of Nursing Sponsored by Private Hospitals

Private hospitals also need nurses to operate. They know it’s hard to get nurses. So many private hospitals train their own nurses to work in their own hospitals. You must identify which hospital is willing to sponsor these students. To help you shorten your search, I have some suggestions for you. I have provided information about some of these nursing schools here:
