Cuttington University Caps 102 Nursing Students
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 30 (LINA) – The Cuttington University has capped, badge and pinned more than one hundred students from the Nursing Department of the University.

Capping symbolizes the successful completion of the first year of nursing school, while pinning represents the successful completion of the entire nursing program.

During this traditional ceremony, the first year female students are presented the school’s nursing cap and male students the chevron, while the second year students receive the school nursing pin.

Delivering the keynote address, the Program Manager of Reproductive Health at the UNFPA, Woseh Gobeh, called on the students to attach more seriousness to research in their quest to become professional nurses.

“In order to perform your task efficiently, which has to do with saving lives, those of you who have decided to take up nursing as a profession should be prepared to develop the spirit of research,” Gobeh stressed.

She admonished the students to build the resilience and go through the walls of Cuttington University to get the kind of quality education and moral discipline to serve the nation.

Ms. Gobeh described Cuttington as the beckon of hope for nurturing competent nurses in Liberia and applauded the University for its support to the human resource development of the health sector.

Also speaking, Cuttington University Interim President Dr. Evenly Kandakai said Cuttington continues to grow in academic excellence and assured continuity in this direction as part of the nation’s transformation agenda.

Dr. Kandakai said with the need for more professionals in the health sector, the college of Allied Health Sciences has introduced several new disciplines, including radiology, medical technician and physician assistant programs, among others.

The CU President called on the students to be more studious, noting that the nursing profession is a critical component of the health system that demands committed, diligent and disciplined men and women.
