Resources and Facilities

To facilitate student learning, a full range of resources and facilities are available in the School and in the University.

Learning Support Facilities
The Chinese University of Hong Kong has a very good library system, with details available from the University Library System website (http://www.lib.cuhk.edu.hk/). There is also a comprehensive stock of books and nursing journals located mainly at the Li Ping Medical Library (in the Prince of Wales Hospital) and the University Library. The Independent Learning Centre (ILC) is open to students to help with study and writing skills. The Information Technology Services Centre (ITSC) offers IT facilities and services to students. In addition, the School offers up-to-date audio-visual equipment, computers and an on-line network. There are also Clinical Learning and Simulation Centres, computer and audio-visual laboratories in the School. They are well equipped to facilities students to acquire and develop clinical and professional skills.
Clinical Learning & Simulation Centres and Computer Laboratories 

The School has 13 Clinical Learning & Simulation Centres, two at Esther Lee Building and 11 at Choh-Ming Li Basic Medical Sciences Building (BMSB), which include 4 simulation wards and 9 nursing skills laboratories. The simulation wards are well equipped with high-fidelity simulators for multi- and single-scenario simulation training. Besides, the School has two computer and two audio-visual laboratories at BMSB to support interactive student learning. A wide variety of innovative e-learning strategies and simulation technologies are also adopted helping students to acquire nursing skills and enhance clinical competence.

 

S. H. Ho Nursing Teaching and Learning Centre

With the generous donation from the S. H. Ho Foundation Limited, our School established the S. H. Ho Nursing Teaching and Learning Centre at BMSB in 2013. The Centre comprises a computer laboratory and a nursing skills laboratory to facilitate the use of innovative eLearning and simulation technologies for effective training of nurses and healthcare professionals.

Clinical Placement

To provide our students with extensive clinical learning opportunities, the School works closely with a range of hospital and community settings throughout the territory, such as the Prince of Wales Hospital, Shatin Hospital, Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital, Tai Po Hospital, North District hospital, United Christian Hospital, Haven of Hope Hospital, Tseung Kwan O hospital, Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, community clinics, residential care homes and kindergartens.

Student Services and Activities

The University’s Office of Student Affairs (https://www.osa.cuhk.edu.hk/) attends to student welfare and helps students take full advantage of their university education. The services it provided fall mainly into six areas: career planning and development, learning and cultural enhancement, student development & resources, wellness & counselling, support services for students with disabilities and online services. The Wellness and Counselling Centre (WACC) serves full-time students and it is staffed by psychologists and professional counsellors.  Through the following services, the WACC assists students to overcome adjustment difficulties, derive success and satisfaction from their university experiences as well as achieve personal growth and self-enhancement.

The Croucher Laboratory for Human Genomics

The Croucher Laboratory for Human Genomics plays a key role in translating and advancing nursing knowledge using the leading molecular tools, and promoting the importance of basic science knowledge in nursing research. With the state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise, we are able to support, explore and integrate genetic factors, bio-behavioral markers and psychosocial factors to advance our research in different biomedical areas, such as cell culture, genotyping, biomarker analysis, microbiome analysis, immunoassay and different biochemical analyses (e.g. cortisol measurement), so as to strengthen basic science elements in our nursing research.
