School will stage first graduation to ‘strengthen partnership’


THE Professional Accelerate Institute (PAI) School of Nursing in Mt Hagen will stage its first graduation in March, in order to strengthen the private partnership programme and continue help in nation building, director Michael Wek Kerowa says.
Kerowa, who is also the founder of PAI, said the graduation would be a major achievement for the school which has been running as a private institution.
He said the institution would be working in partnership with the Government to ensure young men and women could have a chance to earn qualifications.
“The aim is to help the people who are willing to live a better life by earning knowledge from an institution such as PAI,” he said.
Kerowa said students had been doing their practical training in hospitals and health facilities in the Highlands to bolster their qualifications and gain experience.
“Students have completed their practical in hospitals such as Nipa in Southern Highlands, Sopas in Enga and parts of Western Highlands.”
He said the college was privately owned and had been operating independently without Government or corporate support.
Kerowa said private institutions needed Government support because of the important role they played in the education system.
