SEVENTEEN nurses who graduated from the West New Britain School of Nursing, will all work at the main hospital in Kimbe, a senior health official says.
West New Britain health authority chairman Dr Mathias Sapuri said this following the first graduation of the West New Britain School of Nursing on Friday.
The graduates, four of them men, graduated with diplomas in nursing.
The nursing college was established in 2016, through the initiative of State Enterprises Minister Sasindran Muthuvel to provide training in the province instead of sending students to other provinces.
WNB Governor Francis Maneke said the provincial government implemented the tertiary education study assistance scheme scholarships programme and infrastructure support to institutions.
Maneke said through the support of health training institutions, the province would increase the number and quality of health workers such as midwives, nurses and community health workers in the province.
“You have chosen an honourable path to work with pregnant women, and newborn babies,” he said.
