Dunkwa Nursing & Midwifery College Holds Matriculation & Graduation Ceremony.


The Second Graduation and Eight Matriculation of Dunkwa-on-Offin Nursing & Midwifery Training College, was held on Thursday with a call on students to accept posting to wherever their services will be needed.
They have also been encouraged to bring to bear the knowledge they have acquired throughout the period of training on clients under their care, regardless of colour, race and political affiliation.
Dr. David Asare, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, who made the call on behalf of the Deputy Minister of Health, Madam Tina Mensah said, the government would continue to equip the various Health Training Institutions in the country to the best its ability in terms of human resource infrastructure and technical support to help meet its objectives.
According to him; the government through the Ministry of Health and Finance Ministry has since September 2017 reinstated the Nursing Training allowance just to enhance the comfort or instigate the financial difficulties, trainee nurses go through during their period of training.
He therefore encouraged them from being rude to clients under their care and also maintain their dignity.
The principal of the college, Mr. David Ben Sampson announced that there is the urgent need to relocate the Junior High School pupils from the college’s campus since it has been cited as an accreditation requirement and therefore appealed to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE0 to consider this request and expedite action on it to prevent any untoward negative consequences, that may be slapped on the college by the National Accreditation Board.
According to him there are also squatters who have placed their container shops at the path where the college’s fencing is being constructed which is seriously undermining their efforts while a drinking bar is sited just opposite the main entrance of the college which is causing a lot of nightmare to them in the night.
He added that, efforts have been made since 2013 to legally acquire COCOBOAD piece of land for the college to advance in its growth development , however there have been obstacles confronting the speedy achievements of this very important objective and therefore appealed to major stakeholders to inject vibrancy in the acquisitions process since the current state of affairs does not enhance smooth development and properly complete the fencing of the collage to make its security situation complete.
Mr Kofi Nkansah , CEO of COFKANS Group of Companies who donated 300 bags of cement for the early completion of the fencing of the college in an interview with media advised the students to eschew laziness and take their studies seriously and fellow the college’s rules and regulation in order not to waste the opportunity given them to accomplish the investment made by their parents and government.
He also appealed to the tutors to help the students take their studies seriously so that God will also reward them.
