Case Study

Kamolrat Cheangdee

MSc Nursing

Kamolrat Cheangdee decided to study the MSc Nursing course as she was driven by her love of caring for others. She has made friends from around the world, who also work as nurses. On graduation Kamolrat will return to Thailand where she plans to take the research she has learned at Sunderland to support the training of new nurses.

I love to take care of people, when I can make them smile and relieve their pain or stress, that makes my heart so happy. I decided to further develop my skills at the University of Sunderland due to the outstanding support given to international students, and the consistency of the modules on the nursing course.  

Before starting the course, I had been working as a nurse in the Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgery Intensive care unit for nine years in Thammasat University Hospital in Thailand. I also spent a month in the hospital working in the intensive care unit dealing with Covid-19 patients.  

I have really enjoyed the classes, although we have been studying online, I can feel I get all content I need. The library is also very good, easy to find the books or articles I need. I have also made friends around the world now, working as nurses just like as me and it’s so exciting. 

When I graduate I will fly back to Thailand to work in the same hospital, where I plan to take the research I've learned at Sunderland to support the training of new nurses.  I will also try to solve the problem of why new nurses sometimes leave their jobs after training. 

I would certainly recommend Sunderland and the nursing course to others, it’s a great course to study in a lovely city, with lovely beaches and lovely people.”
