One hundred and twenty-two (122) Midwifery and General Nursing practitioners have graduated at the maiden congregation ceremony of the Assinman Nursing and Midwifery Training College at Assin Fosu in the Central Region.

The ceremony was a dual event which also witnessed the maiden matriculation of the College for continuing and freshly enrolled students. A total of one thousand and two (1, 002) students took the matriculation oath which was administered by the Dean of Students’ Affairs, Mr. Sadique Broni.

Addressing the gathering, the Chairman of the Board of Management of the College, Ehunuabobrim Prah Agensaim VI, in his opening remarks congratulated the graduands on their achievements and charged them to be loyal ambassadors of the College.

He narrated a harrowing account of an experience an old woman recounted to have suffered at the hands of some nurses at a health post in his traditional area to him. He said the poor attitude of some nurses led the woman to trek miles back to her village, in tears, without getting the needed medical assistance for her grandson. The Board Chair reminded the new nurses and midwives of their call to serve and cautioned them against disrespecting their clients. He tasked them to uphold the ethics of their chosen profession.

Ehunuabobrim Prah Agyensaim VI also acknowledged the sterling contribution of the Principal of the College, Mrs Ophelia Nkrumah Johannes, towards the growth of the College from its humble beginnings to the force it is becoming in the training of midwives and general nurses needed for Ghana’s health sector.
