Jessica Bong MJ

student

Bachelor of Nursing

A renowned reputation for its health science program was all it took for Jessica to become a student at Monash University, Nursing and Midwifery.

After leaving Monash, Jessica worked in Malaysia before pursuing her nursing career in Canada having passed the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (also known as the Canadian NCLEX). She said that in 2013 faith took her to the "heartbeat of Canada", Manitoba, where she worked as a registered nurse in a small town called Ste Rose du Lac, about four hours from Winnipeg. 

Since graduating as a nurse, Jessica has worked mostly in the emergency and outpatient departments but at Ste Rose General Hospital, she had the opportunity to provide acute and non-acute care for young and elderly people in the community.

“Being a nurse, you literally hold an "international passport".
You can say that your career is guaranteed for life.”

In 2016, Jessica moved to the west coast of Canada and settled in metropolitan Vancouver. She mentioned, “there is a huge demand of nurses here. In a big city you get to explore even more, in terms of different areas of nursing and lifestyles.” Currently working as a telenurse, she is glad that her quality of life keeps improving because of her nursing career. “Being a nurse, you literally hold an "international passport". You can say that your career is guaranteed for life.”
