“Embrace the opportunity to learn from each other, work together and support one another to achieve the dreams and goals of the profession, and be compassionate, because it is the heart of nursing,” she advised the students.

One of the students, Jasmine Mateko Tetteh, appreciated the administrators and all staff for their support and good teaching skills, and also appealed to the government to provide the college with more practical equipment to enhance their education.
