Dr. Maria Hung is currently an Associate Professor at the School of Nursing at Tung Wah College.  She joined Tung Wah College as an Assistant Professor in 2015 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2016.  She has more than 20 years of experience as teaching faculty in several tertiary education institutions, including The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and The Open University of Hong Kong. Dr. Hung has a solid teaching record, principally in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate nursing programs in Hong Kong and mainland China.  She has received ten teaching awards for her excellent quality teaching performance, including a Teaching Excellence Award from the Tung Wah College, as well as a Master Teacher Award and several Teacher of the Year Awards from The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
 
Before working as teaching faculty in tertiary education institutions, she had more than 15 years of clinical nursing experience with local and overseas emergency and trauma nursing training.  Dr. Hung actively participates in various professional training and community volunteer services locally.  She is a Life Support instructor at American Heart Association, a Mental Health First Aid Hong Kong Instructor, a Psychological First Aider, and a Community Disaster Preparedness Instructor of Hong Kong Red Cross.
 
Dr. Hung's research interests originated from her rich emergency nursing experience, focusing on the end-of-life and bereavement care provided by professional nurses in the emergency department.  To further enhance professional nurses' competency in responding to a public health emergency and disaster events and provide psychological and life support for the public, she has extended her research interests to address the effectiveness of disaster education and psychological well-being among the healthcare professionals and the general public.
