PROUD MOMENT: Nursing tutor Gurjit Kaur (left) and matron Perminder Kaur

Meet two tough ladies. Hectic work schedules and managing families did not deter them from achieving their best on the academic front.

Last month, nursing tutor Gurjit Kaur Lakhwinder Singh and Taiping General Hospital matron Perminder Kaur Mahinder Singh were the proud recipients of the Master’s degree scroll.

They had passed the Master’s in Nursing Science from Open University Malaysia (OUM) in Penang along with 45 other nurses, including eight from Sri Lanka.

“We’ve worked hard to come this far,” Perminder, a mother of three children aged between 23 and 29 years, told Asia Samachar. “It’s a proud moment for me.”

“I like the job,” said Perminder who began her nursing career in 1987. “I like dealing with the latest technology that we have at the hospital. I simply love the job.”

Gurjit is attached to a college linked to the Nursing Penang General Hospital.
