SONG, Dan (PhD in Nursing student, admitted in 2015)

I obtained my Bachelor of Medicine in Nursing degree from Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012, and Master of Nursing degree from Zhejiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2015.

During my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I had achieved No.1 ranking on academic performance in my department for seven consecutive years. Because of this I had received the university first-degree scholarship consecutively and the National Scholarship for undergraduates and postgraduates for four years. I was also honored with the award of Provincial Outstanding Graduate in 2012 and 2015 respectively.

To enhance my research capacity, I actively participated in several programs sponsored by the National Science Foundation and Provincial Science Foundation to investigate the application and effectiveness of TCM in combating chronic diseases in community. Meanwhile, I assisted my supervisor in writing the book “Traditional Chinese Nursing”; I was mainly responsible for text editing and typesetting.

Nursing is a caring and dynamic profession. I wish through strengthening my professional knowledge and research capacity I could contribute more to the nursing profession and our society. I am so grateful to CUHK Nethersole School of Nursing and the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme for offering me this invaluable opportunity to fulfill my dream.

ZHANG, Jingjun (PhD in Nursing student, admitted in 2014)

I was graduated from the School of Nursing, College of Medicine, Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), major in Nursing. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in 2011 and completed my Master’s Degree studies in mid 2014.

I had achieved outstanding academic performance and acquired rich research experience during my study at XJTU. When I was an undergraduate student, I received various scholarships and awards every year because of my excellent academic performance. In 2011, I was the only student in our School receiving “the Outstanding Graduate Cadre of Xi'an Jiaotong University”, an award only presented to the top 1% of graduates in each academic year.

Regarding Master’s studies, my overall GPA (3.68/4.0) ranked No. 1 in my department. In order to strengthen my research capacity, I actively involved in most of the research projects led by my supervisor, Prof. Xiaomei Li. For example, I participated in the field survey and data analysis in a project on comprehensive HIV/AIDS Prevention and Health Education Network Model in resource-limited rural areas, sponsored by the Chinese National Science Foundation. In 2011-2012, I assisted Prof. Li in writing two books, the Introduction to Nursing and the Book of Nursing. I was mainly responsible for information collection, text editing and typesetting. In 2013, I took part in the Community Chronic Disease Management Programme sponsored by the China Medical Board (CMB). In this programme, I successfully formed a Diabetics Club in the Dongguan South Street Community in Xi’an, conducted health education lectures and provided health advice and guidance to community residents with diabetes. I had also participated in other programmes including a research programme on early identification and treatment of neurosis, which is one of the programmes under the Eleventh Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development undertaken by the Fourth Military Medical University.

In 2012, I was nominated as the representative of XJTU to participate in CMB Young Nursing Scholar Training Programme, in which I had completed a research proposal and a presentation. In 2013, I successfully enrolled in the 2013 Summer School on Developing Critical and Innovative Thinking Abilities of Nursing Graduates hosted by the School of Nursing of Harbin Medical University, and was graduated with honors. These training programmes have broadened my horizons in both nursing science and nursing research.  

It has been my dream to become a nurse since my childhood, and I wish I can become a nurse researcher and a professional caregiver one day. Thanks to the CUHK and the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme for offering this invaluable opportunity for me to tap into my potentials and realize my dream to become an excellent student, researcher and caregiver.
