Mrs Rhoda Darmata Bukari, the Principal of the Bawku Presbyterian Nursing Training College (PNTC) in the Upper East Region has called on nurses to exhibit discipline and love in their work.
Mrs Bukari said the nursing profession was a noble one aimed at providing quality health services to the people and noted that professionals needed to be disciplined and humane in delivering services.
She was speaking at the end of a week long celebration of the General Nursing and Midwives Trainee Association (GNMTA) of the Bawku Presbyterian Nursing Training Collegeu, with the theme, “role of the trainee’ nurse in quality health care delivery for national development”.
She urged the trainee nurses to eschew lateness to class and work absenteeism and alcoholism because they were detrimental to saving lives which was their core mandate.
Mrs Bukari asked the nurses to dress decently, show respect and love, and humility to the patient as that could form part of their healing process.
Mr Roger Weguri, the Chaplin of the College charged the students to use their youthful exuberance to change society by living lives worthy of emulation.
Mr Weguri urged the students to see their profession as a noble one and a call to serve mankind.
He charged the students to avoid bad company and be committed to their studies, adding that their role in society was crucial and that they needed to do things right in school before coming out as nurses.
Mr Fred Effa-Yeboah, the General Manager of the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital charged the students to go out and exhibit the discipline and training impacted into them to make them ingenious.
He appealed to the students to be submissive and accommodative to patients.
